Senior Nathan Kopel Wins the 2023 Declamations Contest

Our 2nd annual TGC Declamations Contest was a great success. This inspiring evening of oration showcased the talents of Pacifica’s students as they declaimed masterfully crafted works—both new and familiar—from The Great Conversation.

Having progressed through several rounds of competition—our 10 finalists declaimed in one of three categories: Bible / Theology, Oratory, and Literature. In between presentations, Pacifica students entertained the audience with beautiful musical interludes as our esteemed panel of judges deliberated. At the end of the night, senior Nathan Kopel was crowned the overall winner for his outstanding recitation & performance of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart.” Sophomore Ashley Gundlach and senior Sara Hammond also came first in their respective categories. Congratulations, Tritons!
