The next meeting for the speech team will be Oct. 18 in room E149 at 3:15 after school.

Katelyn Wang, speech team member and sophomore, said team members will use this time to practice for their upcoming competition, which will be Oct. 27, according to speech team sponsor Jacleen Joiner.

In order to prepare, Wang said the team will work on cutting speeches, a process in which members slim down their pieces to fit time restrictions and add clarity to their work, as well as participate in bonding activities.

Apart from the team members’ preparation for their first meet, this year’s speech team also decided to not elect students into leadership positions, Wang said.
