Michelle H. Daino
On Saturday, January 28, nine members of the Mount's Speech and Debate team competed at Ridge High School in the New Jersey Speech & Debate League. A record turnout of over 700 students from six states including New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Arkansas, gave our young ladies some great competition as well as an opportunity to learn different styles in presentation, gesturing, facial expression, vocal variation and piece selection.
The pieces and arguments that our roster delivered at the Ridge Invitational:
Zoe Schack '24 - (Original Oratory) "Sticks and Stones" by Zoe Schack
Grace Glynn '23 - (Oral Interpretation) "Johnny Got His Gun" by Dalton Trumbo (Prose), Assorted Poems on Bullying (Poetry)
