Please join me in congratulating the following students in their performance at the Optimist International Oratorical Competition: Amira Crutcher, Yousra Hassan, Emilija Karasiova, Robert Kullberg, Lamynia Lewis, and Makenzie Schmuhl.
These students represented OE beautifully and had wonderful presentations. Students competed against other students from Blue Valley North, Olathe South, and homeschooled youth. Our students were articulate, professional, and inspiring! It was a great night to be a Hawk!
In addition, the three awards went to Mak Schmuhl (1st place), Lamynia Lewis (2nd place), and Yousra Hassan (3rd place). Mak will go on to represent our school at the district contest in Wichita. Olathe East has never swept this competition, so this is a remarkable achievement for these promising orators.
