The Indian Hill School District congratulates Indian Hill Middle School eighth-grade student-author Karma Phillips for advancing to the Power of the Pen State Competition! Phillips placed 14th out of 78 writers during the Power of the Pen Regional Competition, which took place at Cincinnati Country Day School on March 4.
“We are incredibly proud of Karma for sharing her incredible artistry in this way,” said Indian Hill Middle School Principal Lauren Gentene. “We will all be cheering her on as she advances to state!”
“Karma did an outstanding job at regionals,” said Indian Hill Middle School Teacher Toni Roark, who mentors the Power of the Pen students. “Additionally, we want to celebrate fellow Indian Hill Middle School student-authors Uma Siripurapu and Ardisha Thawrani, who both qualified to compete in regionals, but were unable to attend the event. We are proud of all of our student-authors!”
The Power of the Pen State Competition will be hosted by Ashland University in May.
