The HRV Speech and Debate team took 2nd Place in State 5A yesterday. It was a wonderful State competition experience with an outstanding crew. Of the 19 competitors from HRV, 10 are seniors. We qualified 8 students to semifinal rounds in speaking events.
Ruby Patterson is the State Champion in Expository Speaking and earned 2nd Place in Radio Commentary.
Soren Rajani was a Quarterfinalist in Lincoln-Douglas Debate.
Ruby Patterson and Amy Webber were awarded medals as 4-year State Competitors.
“Of course, the successes not reflected in medals are the dearest to my heart– so many students who started as scared, shy, faltering speakers who now routinely perform top in their rounds and who are better thinkers and writers because of this crazy thing they do in their spare time.
Thanks to all for your support!”-DeLona Campos-Davis
