Haughton High School's Destination Imagination team sets records again at Globals.
Well, they did it again! Last year our HHS DI Improv team pulled off the impossible at Globals by placing 3rd overall in Instant Challenge for their division. This year they did even better. First, our Improv team lead by Mrs. Jessica Raley had to win state in their division, check! Next, they had to raise the money to get them to Destination Imagination Globals held in Knoxville, Tenn., check! Then, they had to perform against teams from across the country and the world, check! The great news is, they scored 11th overall, as in the whole world in their division! This is a very impressive win for our team. They had to perform against 70 teams in their division from across the country and the world. Their 11th place win is an outstanding show of talent and tenacity. This is the fourth year for HHS to have DI teams, and this is the fourth year HHS has had a team or teams win state and travel to Globals. You can't get much more impressive than that. Of course, their goal next year is to get back to Globals and win in the top 10 where they will then be shown over the huge jumbotron during the closing ceremony. Sounds like a wonderful goal! Congrats to our DI Improv team lead by Mrs. Jessica Raley: Courtney Jackson, Meagan McMillian, Katie Hay, Valerie Bass, Dalton Smiley, and Nathan McMillian.
