HALO Child Featured in Kansas City Star for Slam Poetry Competition

After winning the regional slam poetry competition in March, a team of nine Lincoln College Preparatory Academy students will take their talent to the next stage of the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival in San Francisco in July. One of these students is Marjai Neal who has been a part of the HALO family for 6 years. “Everything I spit, I wrote,” Marjai said. “This is personal. It comes from our hearts.” Marjai, your HALO family loves you. Congratulations!
