Central High School’s English Department congratulates Alesha Gutierrez for being named runner up in the Nassau County Regional Poetry Out Loud Recitation Competition. Created by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation, Poetry Out Loud encourages students to learn about the power of poetry through memorization and recitation. With the help of her English teacher Justine Chan, Alesha chose, memorized and recited three different poems, showcasing her range in understanding distinctive styles and poets. Alesha’s dedication, hard work and appreciation of poetry will continue on March 9th at Poetry Out Loud’s New York State competition in Syracuse.
