Speech and Debate Districts


Bella Lankford and Daniel Potter

The students participating in Speech and Debate have been placing very well in their competitions. Two Diamond High School students, senior Tessa Shaw and sophomore Bailey Danner, both placed in districts for speech and debate! Tessa Shaw placed 1st in poetry, 2nd in dramatic interpenetration, and 2nd in Pros. Bailey Danner placed 3rd in humorous interpretation! They will continue on to state in April for their pieces. An online Zoom meeting will be held in front of judges as they perform their pieces. They are also going on to compete in the NSDA Districts. Good Luck!!
