Miller Grove UIL Advances to Regional/State Competitions

Several Miller Grove students competed at the Regional UIL Academic tournament the weekend of April 12 after advancing from the District Meet in March. As a UIL team, these students work hard throughout the school year and the work paid off as several will be competing at the State Speech Meet in May. As a reward for their hard work, they spent part of the day at Klyde Warren Park and Uptown in Dallas competing in a “Wild Goose Chase” where the students completed challenges to earn points. We are proud of all of the students who participated and wish the ones advancing in May the best of luck.
