CDA Freshman Earns High Scores In Speech Competition
Freshman Ellie Gilbert competed in both final rounds of poetry, placing 6th in each, during the Flower Mound Swing tournament held January 28th and 29th.
Swing tournaments occur when a school hosts two tournaments that run simultaneously on the same weekend, giving students double opportunities for competition points. Ellie earned the points necessary to earn her membership in the National Speech and Debate Association, an honor society for speech and debate competitors. She joins Sam Jung and Jonathan Khayat who have earned membership this year as well. Six Flower Mound speech students hold membership in this prestigious national honor society. We are proud of these three new members alongside Alex Antonacci, Landon Brubaker, and JB Lilley.
