Congratulations to our World Language students that attended the 44th annual Clemson Declamation Contest on Saturday, October 22nd!

There were over 450 students representing 27 different schools from South Carolina and Georgia at the competition. Starr’s Mill sent 33 students and 28 of those students placed in their competition groups. Two of the 28 competed in multiple languages.
