Another weekend, another speech and debate tournament. I hit the road for Mississippi State University with Nathan, and nine of his teammates, all in their first year as competitors.
This year’s novices are (front from left): Nathan Campbell, Jamil Johnson, Rachel Hairston, and Erica and (second row from left): Brenden, Coach Kelley Patin, Camille Richardson, Viviek Patel, Olivia Hines, Brian Hicks, and Coach Micah Everson. Gabi is not pictured.
Brenden and Erika made it to finals in Lincoln-Douglas.
Gabi placed fourth in declamation.
Nathan placed second in extemporaneous speech.
Olivia placed 5th in dramatic performance. Brian and Viviek made it to quarter-finals in public forum. Overall, Murrah was named a “school of excellence in debate.”
Another good weekend for Murrah High School speech and debate.
