The Iola High School forensics team finished 12th at a state competition this past weekend.

Even though the contest was virtual, students and faculty did their best to make it feel like an event.

IHS celebrated with a “send-off to nowhere,” with students lined up along the sidewalks and cheering as the team of competitors left the building Friday. Team members then enjoyed a dinner and activities together.
