School of Communication Speech Contest
Hayley Cargill, a History major, won second place in the School of Communication's Speech Contest. Hayley, an honors student, enjoys debating and would like to pursue Law School.
Out of 4,000 students from the Introductory speech classes, one student from each class section was nominated by their professor to compete in the Speech Contest for the School of Communication. For the preliminary round, over 100 students competed for five finalist spots. All of the speeches were given in a problem-solution format in which we were to address a problem and create a solution for that problem through the speech and through a visual aid.
Hayley's speech was about the ineffectiveness about the drug war within the United States and our approach from criminalization to rehabilitation. Congratulations Hayley!
