“I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the students."
Thanks, Mom! - Naomi S Speech and debate has helped me a lot. I have become comfortable speaking in public and... earlier this year I won 1st place at a local speech contest. The tournaments are so much fun and I've made many new friends. I'm so glad that my mom made me do this.
I fell in love with speech - Shira S I was so terrified at speaking in public that I would barely speak to people when they greeted me. I reluctantly agreed to join our club for a second year and that is when the magic happened - I fell in love with speech. I love the wonderful friends I've made through speech and debate.
A totally different child - Tina S. Speech and debate had affected every aspect of his life for the better. He participated in Model United Nations and voluntarily took the podium to address his assigned country’s issues in front of a packed room! He was elected as one of the key leaders in his Boy Scout troop and chosen by his peers for the Order of the Arrow. My son is a totally different child today, and we really owe it all to speech and debate.
