Ashley's Speech at State
Ashley participated on speech team this year. She had so much fun. Since she is just a 5th grader she was only allowed to do one. So she chose to do a solo. They also have duets, chorus, improv., etc. I anticipate that next year she will do the most she can which I believe is three. For those not familiar with speech, it is really more "acting" than just standing up and giving a speech. They have a conference competition and then a state competition. For those who maybe participated in band solo and ensemble contest as a kid (or has a kid in it), these competitions are very similar. You are basically competing against yourself. Ashley scored a first at both Conference and State. She did an awesome job!
