Special Recognition

Marietta City Schools would like to congratulate Marietta High School recent graduate Alijah Roberson on his first-place win at the Georgia High School Association 7A Literary Competition, held in March at Buford High School. Alijah competed in the Oral Presentation category for Dramatic Monologues and performed the monologue “The Mountaintop” by Katori Hall.

Alijah graduated from Marietta High School this past May and will be pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in theatre at the University of Evansville, where he received a scholarship. He discovered his passion for theatre in Mrs. Mary Gagliardi’s theatre class at Hickory Hills Elementary School and has been involved in theatre programs throughout the district ever since. We congratulate Alijah on his accomplishment and wish him great success in the future.
