BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Norma and Jen for their First Place finishes at the Area Contest!!!!  They will go on to compete at the Division Contest being held in Los Olivos on Saturday, October 14.
Speakers”
Norma‘s speech, “Go For It,” was an inspirational speech about getting out of your box, moving past your self-imposed boundaries to succeed in new things. Don’t believe that little voice that tells you you can’t, you CAN!
Victor gave his Ice Breaker speech, “Live & Learn,” which was also an inspirational speech about Victor’s path to “getting rich,” which ultimately involved moving from a job with financial “riches” to one with riches from educating future generations.
Grace gave what was probably her 20th Ice Breaker speech, appropriately titled “Re-Ice Breaker.” Grace shared stories of growing up on a farm in Nebraska with kittens and books, and her very brief stint as an unsuspecting drug mule in her late teens.
Awards:
Best Speaker went to Norma for inspiring us to be eagles and ignore those inner voices!
Best Table Topics went to guest Morgan for her creative use of the color purple in making critical grocery decisions.
Best Evaluator went to Janna for her evaluation of Victor’s speech
