Duke made it through his first speech contest. He said it fine, but he can’t get loud enough to win yet. His voice will change. Really good competition. I’m pleased with his presentation. We’ve got a lot to work on in the future, but he isn’t afraid to get in front of a crowd and talk. The rest will come.

I did get to see Uncle Fester at the speech contest. For those of you to young to remember the Addams Family tv show–google it. He had recently been bit by a boar. Yes, a boar bit Mr. Gosney. Nasty wound. However, his daughter qualified for the state contest. First time in several decades that a Shattuck student made it to state.
