On Saturday last, AGBU MDS sent two students to represent our schoolat the annual English Speaking Union Shakespeare Competition at Marlborough High School in Los Angeles. We are proud and happy to announce that out of twenty schools competing, both of our student performers, Christine Mirzayan and Alec Bedrossian, were selected as one of six to move on to the finals next Sunday at the Huntington Gardens in Pasadena. They will compete on Sunday, along with four other student performers, for the honor of representing the State of California at the National Shakespeare Competition in New York City.

Three years ago, AGBU MDS student, Merri Roshoyan went on to win the finals there and received an all-expense paid trip to compete in New York at the National Shakespeare Competition. While there, Merri won admission and a scholarship to University of the Arts in Philadelphia where she currently attends.

We wish Christine and Alec the best of luck next weekend!
