March 27, 2017 — Webster Thomas recently sent Jessica Giordano, a senior, as the Thomas representative in a local competition on reading selected works of William Shakespeare.  Ms Giordano took second place in the area contest, held March 4 at Rochester’s Multi-use Community Cultural Center (MuCCC) on Atlantic Avenue in Rochester.  Sponsored by the Rochester branch of the national English-Speaking Union of the United States, the competition drew participants from several private and public schools in the area; all students had prepared various speeches and sonnets to read and perform.

Jessica, along with Kylie Raguso, Joe Badaracco, and David Potter, competed at Webster Thomas for the right to represent Webster Thomas in the Rochester contest. Jessica read Queen Margaret’s monologue from Shakespeare’s Henry VI.  Ms Sheila Byrne and Mr. Mark Stoetzel organized the school competition.
