On February 11th, Connor Jacobs and Ruby Yeary, members of The June Buchanan School’s junior division Speech Team, participated in Regionals at Knott County Central. Students tested their abilities in prose and duo acting. Jacobs and Yeary are first-year Speech Team members and decided to try something new by working each week on various speech skills. Their efforts seem to have paid off as Jacobs and Yeary both advanced on to State competition.
On March 30th — 31st, the students will travel to the University of Kentucky where they will face a gifted group of peers in their respective categories. Coach Karen Bailey said, “At Regionals students perform against talented young students from surrounding counties. We are blessed to have a chance to use these opportunities as the ‘ultimate’ practices. Students most often get valuable feedback to better themselves as performers, and I look forward to our students getting to take part in this experience.”
