Nogales student makes youth poetry slam team

She’s a poet, don’t you know it.

Alright, we’ll leave the poetry to Nogales High School student Ashlyn Atkins.  The Vice President of The Poetry Club has qualified to be on the Inland Empire National Youth Poetry Slam Team. 

The top 6 qualify with two alternates.  Atkins came in second.  This summer, the Noble sophomore will travel to Washington DC, where her team will compete against teams from all over the country.

The name of the event is called BRAVE NEW VOICES.  Atkins is a student in the Hip Hop Rhyme and Poetry class at Nogales.
