Poetry Contest Winners Jam in Library

Mr. Reggie Lewis served as Master of Ceremonies in Friday’s Poetry Jam – held in a jam-packed library.

BRONX, NY – It was quite a “jam” in the jam-packed Truman library on Friday.  April is national poetry month – and Truman High School celebrated with a poetry contest and several special events.

One such event was a school-wide poetry contest.  The winners – as well as dozens of other students took to the microphone in the school library for the annual poetry jam.  They were joined by a few teachers who also shared their inspired writing as well.
