LEXINGTON, S.C. — Students from White Knoll High School won a total of 11 awards at the 2016 Palmetto Dramatic Association and South Carolina Thespians State Festival, held in February at Dorman High School in Roebuck.

A total of 28 students from the WKHS Theatre Department participated in the festival, which was conducted by the Palmetto Dramatic Association and the state chapter of the International Thespian Society. Students from WKHS performed the plays “Superhero Ultraferno” and “Teenage Screw-Ups” at the state competition.
