Speech Showcase is May 27

Centralia College Speech Club will present its Second Annual Speech Showcase from 6 to 8:00 p.m. Friday, May 27 in Wickstrom Theatre in Washington Hall on the college campus. Ten students will compete for the Top Speaker on Campus award.

The Speech Showcase is free and open to all. The club will provide desserts and coffee provided by Fiddler’s Coffee.

“The Speech Club decided since we have so many great public speakers on campus that it would be cool to showcase the Top 10 in a competition and crown a Top Speaker on Campus at the end of each school year,” explained communications professor Jeff McQuarrie. “I am really proud of the students for doing such a great job on this event. They won Best Club Activity on Campus last year.”

The Top 10 Speakers were chosen during a two-minute speech competition earlier this month. Each of those winners will receive certificates. Small prizes will be given to the top three contestants at the Speech Showcase. Those who compete have the opportunity to receive coaching from their peers so that they can polish their public speaking skills during two rehearsals.
