Waurika Students Place at Speech Contest

Regena Bradley and Kaytlyn Williams

This article was written by the staff of the Eagle Talk Newspaper:

 On Saturday, November 17, members of the Waurika High School speech team attended the Marlow Speech Tournament.  Of those attending, freshman Kaytlyn Williams and sophomore Regena Bradley both placed in their respective categories.

Williams, a first-time speech participant, competed in the Dramatic Interpretation event and placed third.  Bradley, a second-year speech club member but a first-time competitor, placed 2nd in her event, Original Oratory.  

Both girls will continue to practice their pieces in preparation for regionals, which will take place in the spring.    Other speech members will begin competing again in January when the team travels to their next meet. 

“I could not be more proud of these girls,” speech coach Jessica Cornelison stated.  “We really haven’t had a lot of quality practice-time, and both of these girls worked hard on their own to prepare.  To be first-time competitors and to step out of their comfort zone is a big deal, to begin with, but qualifying for regionals and bringing home trophies just proves how dedicated and talented these students are.”

0

 Waurika’s Landry Forsyth has been given the distinct honor of being one of 74 students across the state to serve on the 2019 Student Advisory Council instituted by State School Superintendent Joy Hofmeister.

 The Advisory Council will have their first meeting in 2020 on January 29th at the State Capitol. 

At the meeting the council will discuss issues related to the youth in the State of Oklahoma. 

Hofmeister chose these students because of their perspective and willingness to serve. “These are among Oklahoma’s best and brightest high school leaders, and we look forward to learning more about the student perspective on matters of school policy,” Hofmeister said in a prepared statement. “Working with these outstanding young people is a highlight of every spring and their input on topics as diverse as bullying, career readiness and school funding has been instrumental to our state-level decision-making. 

The first Advisory Council convened in 2016.
