NE speech students to illustrate talents

By Susan Tallant/editor-in-chief

Speech and debate students invite the community to join them this week on NE Campus for two events to showcase talents and raise money.

The event will feature platform speeches including informative, persuasive and entertaining speeches as well as interpretive events such as prose, poetry, drama and poi (programmed oral interpretation), Irene Thrower, speech instructor, said.

“Speech night is a fundraiser for the speech and debate team to try to raise enough money to pay for our first trip to an international tournament in London this spring,” she said.

The next night will bring Open mic night, which gives all students and community members a chance to shine.
