Earlier today, one of our amazing scholars was profiled on KPLR Channel 11.  Kalise Harris, a South City Prep 7th grade scholar, recently won the 7th grade Poetry Foundation contest by sharing her poem “My Friend”.

After reading her heartbreaking poem last month, she had a chance to talk about her poem today in an interview on KPLR Channel 11.

Check out her poem and follow up interview by clicking here.

We are so proud of Kalise and the grit she showed by sharing her story and representing our school on television.  A huge “shout out” needs to go to our outstanding Communication Arts teachers Colleen Smith, Michelle Oyola, Kate Kozlowski and Anna Taylor.  These amazing teachers are motivating our scholars to do some wonderful things and are preparing them to get to and through college!
