ESD is excited to share that Arya '26 has been selected as the National Youth Story Teller representing the State of Texas for the Timpanooga Story Telling Festival! This festival is the largest storytelling festival in the western United States and brings together select storytellers from across the nation.
Arya has been storytelling participating in storytelling festivals throughout Texas for the past few years. She is passionate about public speaking and enjoys coaching young kids the basics of the art - you may have heard her speak in chapel in the past!
Timpanooga is also one of the few storytelling festivals that selects youth storytellers, making this accomplishment even more special. Although typically held in Lehi, UT, the festival will be held online this weekend, September 11-13, so tune in to the Timpanooga Story Telling Festival website to learn more.
Way to go, Eagle - we are so proud of you!
