Hutchison Girls Excel in World Languages at Local Competition
Middle and upper school girls participated in the 2019 World Language Fair at The University of Memphis where they demonstrated their knowledge of world languages and cultures along with more than 1,000 high school students in the Memphis area.
The students competed in a variety of contests including poetry recitation, writing, costumes, folk dance, drama, music, projects, crafts, and a culture bowl in Chinese, Latin, and Spanish. The fair is sponsored by the University's Department of Foreign Languages and Literature.
