As I’ve mentioned before, I help coach a Speech Team at my high school. I was also on the team at the school I attended and it was probably the most influential part of my life at that time.
A lot of people have no idea what that involves… do we just give speeches all day? No, not exactly.
So you can imagine the pleasant surprise I got when I saw a front-page story about Speech in the Chicago Tribune yesterday.
The team profiled is one I’ve competed against for years — they’re always strong and definitely worthy of the attention. Reporter John Keilman followed the team over the past month as they made their way through the Regional, Sectional, and State tournament.
It’s a great article and you get a glimpse of what Speech is like The video and pictures are worth checking out, too.
