Ella will be a senior this fall at Ray-Pec High School.

Andrew Burton placed 7th in the nation in Humorous Interpretation for the Middle School portion of the tournament. He is a student at Ray-Pec South Middle School.

Six other Ray-Pec High School students competed at the national tournament. Alec Heriford placed 25th in Prose Interpretation. Other competitors were Tevin Chavez, Katie Clewell, Brenden Lucas, Jaden Lanza, and Ian Van Horn.

Six students from Ray-Pec South Middle School competed in the middle school division at the national tournament. In addition to Andrew Burton, the other competitors were Calibrah Voliva and Sarah Friedline, Duo Interpretation; James Moss and Nigel Norvel, Duo Interpretation; James Moss, Dramatic Interpretation; Nigel Norvel, Prose; and Lexi Thomas, Storytelling.

Ella is the daughter of Theatre Teacher Todd Schnake and just-retired Theatre Teacher Pam Schnake. Her brother, Dane Schnake, is the theatre teacher at South Middle School.

Ella's event was Program Oral Interpretation. Using selections from Prose, Poetry and Drama students create a ten minute performance around a central theme. Program Oral Interpretation is designed to test a student’s ability to connect multiple types of literature into a single, cohesive performance. A manuscript is required and may be used as a prop within the performance if the performer maintains control of the manuscript at all times. Performances can also include an introduction written by the student to contextualize the performance and state the title and the author of each selection.
