I passed my qualifying speech for Senior Boards today. As a part of my school district’s graduation requirements I had to create a portfolio of my high school work and future plans, complete 20 hours of community service, and prepare a 10-15 minute speech that answers four questions the judges ask.
Today was the qualifying speech, which I had to pass to move onto Senior Boards. I passed the speech with “exceeds expectations,” so I guess public speaking is an undiscovered strong suit. Now I just have to wait until May 1st to complete my final speech, which will be in front of a panel of 3-4 community members.
