Hope Academy of Public Service student Eva Davis won second place in the grades 6-8 division of the recent Southwest Arkansas Educational Cooperative Poetry Slam.
Davis’ entry “The Hate You Give” was inspired by the movie of the same name, a film study of law enforcement community relations and youth attitudes. The award presentation was made by National Parks Service Ranger Christian Davis, from the President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site in Hope.
Other HAPS students who participated included Michael Crossno, Bethany White, Frankie Hill, Camri Cox, and Kimarria Thornburg.
