Addisyn Gruis has been chosen as the Pierre Fine Arts-First National Bank “Performer of the Week” for her participation in Oral Interp.
Gruis was the only performer from Pierre to be entered into two solo categories (non-original oratory and storytelling) at the first meet of the season at Sioux Falls Roosevelt High School. She also had the highest placing for an individual on the team, earning 4th of 10 entries in the varsity non-original oratory category. Gruis has shown herself as a role model for the rest of the team as her many hours of personal practice paid off. At the same time, she is one of the most humble and supportive members on the team.
