Kiefer is proud of the efforts put forth by all who participated. “There were over 100 students, from every ‘group’ here at RHS on a cold January night,” she said. “I am swept off my feet by the encouragement and support they showed one another as they shared their work.  I am already planning April’s Slam.”
