Speech & Debate Team Hits the Halls of MHS

Mrs. Christina Behl has taken on the role of Speech & Debate coach and is trying to get students interested in the fine arts. Speech and Debate is a class offered as a replacement for English IV. First year competitors are required to add the oral communications class to their schedule, whereas veteran competitors (after this initial year) will be able to join the speech and debate team as an extracurricular. "It's a new program so there is a bit of a learning curve. I'm just wanting to get kids comfortable with public speaking " is what Mrs. Bel has to say about the team. There are currently nine students enrolled in the class, with seven students actively competing in tournaments. The team will compete in a minimum of two tournaments a semester, and then the district tournament will be in the spring semester. Mrs. Behl is hoping to keep the program growing and have more interest from the student body.
