The Friends of the Library continue their Spring program line-up on Thursday, May 14th at 4:30 pm with "National Spotlight" featuring Danville High School Forensics national competitors. Members of the forensics team preparing for the national competition will share a variety of speech and drama pieces at this event.

Danville High School (DHS) placed second at the Kentucky High School Speech League’s State Speech Tournament on March 13-14 at the University of Kentucky. Twenty-six DHS entries advanced through three preliminary rounds to the Semifinals in thirteen events. This spring, Danville High School won the Louisville Diocese tournament of the Catholic Forensic League for an unprecedented nineteenth straight year. Twelve students from DHS qualified to represent the Kentucky area in the Grand Nationals in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, over Memorial Day weekend. Some of the events in which they will compete include Congressional Debate, Declamation, Dramatic Performance, and Oratory. The DHS Forensics team is coached by Steve Meadows, Head of the English Department at Danville High School.

This free program is open to the public and will be held in the Community Room at the Boyle County Public Library.
