This speech spotlight episode features Rock Springs High School alum, Kennedy Nicole Thompson. Kennedy was a four-year Tiger, successful PF debater, and the 2021 Wyoming State Champion in Original Oratory. The speech that she is sharing with us today is her State Champion speech called “Mad Woman.”
A quick word about how to use these speech spotlight episodes. First, enjoy an excellent, very well done speech. The speech spotlight is another opportunity for students to share their unique and powerful voice to an audience in an audio format. So, sit back and enjoy some brilliance from our speech and debate community. Second, consider how you might use this speech as a model for anyone who is looking to write and perform their own original oratories. Third, these speeches could be excellent learning tools for coaches and competitors. Actively reflecting on what makes a speech powerful, effective, or even flawed can help coaches and competitors add more tools and ideas to their own speaking toolboxes.
