LISD UIL Academic Coordinator Jeannine Brandon said she was proud of all the contestants, and the success at the district meet is just the latest in a string of academic accomplishments.
Brandon said on March 15 the LHS theatre department performed "Amadeus" for their UIL One-Act play at the district competition at Texas High School in Texarkana.
"The play was selected alternate play and received praises from both judges and audience," she said.
Selected for individual awards were Sid Montano, All-Star Cast; Malia Boulware, Technical All-Star Cast; and Alex Lammers, All Star Cast Honorable Mention.
The play was directed by Pam Mercer McWilliams, with Nicole Smith as Technical Director.
