Lucy Tu was selected to be part of the NET and NSAA Best of the Best show. This is where they film one state champion in each of the 9 NSAA state events to be aired on NET. The students all represent different classes (A,B,C1,C2,D1,D2) and Lucy is one of two class A students performing on the show. This year she was state champion in Dramatic Interpretation, which is a 10 minute cutting of the short story "The Paper Menagerie" that she brings to life.

Great Job!
