Valle Speech Team Competes At St. Agnes

The Valle Catholic Schools speech team participated in a Bellarmine speech meet at St. Agnes in Bloomsdale on March 16. In speech meets, students in fifth through eighth grades develop and improve their public-speaking skills by memorizing and performing material in humorous, serious and duet categories. Ribbons are awarded to participants based upon the total score received from two judges. A perfect score of 30 points earns a gold ribbon; scores of 27 to 29 earn blue ribbons; and scores from 22 to 26 points earn red ribbons. Team members, pictured from left: humorous duet, August Palmer, eighth grade, and Ella Wolk [not pictured], blue ribbon for “Open to Interpretation” by Ken Bradbury; humorous duet, Drake Meyer and Grayson McGowan, fifth grade, blue ribbon for “Batman: The Real Story Begins” by Robert L. Crowe; humorous solo, Nolan Prehm, fifth grade, red ribbon for “Sun Dazed” by Ken Bradbury; and humorous solo, Natalie Kist, eighth grade, blue ribbon for “What Really Happened Between Goldilocks and the Three Bears” by Kelsey Larson. The team is coached by Sara Drost. (Photo, information from Sara Drost)
