GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Greene County High School students will represent the State of Arkansas at a national festival.

In February, students of GCT’s thespian troop 7614 walked away with the state title at the Arkansas Thespian Festival hosted by Jonesboro High School, as well as over $100,000 in scholarships.

They now advance to the International Thespian Festival being held this summer in Lincoln, Nebraska.

GCT Senior Kyle Vincent said he’s enjoyed the experience and looks forward to what’s to come this summer in Nebraska.

“I’m still not sure that it’s hit me yet,” Vincent said. “I’m very thankful that we got this far and I’m very proud of our school because this is the first time we’ve ever been selected to go to nationals or anything like that.”

The week-long trip for the 26 students costs $740.00 per student and they need your help to get them to Nebraska.

The students are hosting a pork steak dinner and are trying to get business sponsorships and are also accepting donations.

If you’d like to donate, contact Theatre & Drama Instructor Lori Dial by phone at 870-236-2762 or 870-476-4128. She can also be reached by email at Lori.Dial@gctsd.k12.ar.us

    Arkansas' public education system is good, really good. But it took a step back this past week when a joint legislative committee voted to remove journalism classes as a required elective in all Arkansas schools.
