CCAISD students attend speech meet in El Paso

by Pam Young

  Early  Saturday  morning,  Dec.10, the VHHS Speech Team made up of Samantha Cabezuela, Viviana Sanchez ,  Hiram Cruz, and Ryan Corrales left before dawn to compete in the Eastlake High School TFA QUALIFYING Meet in El Paso

   The girls competed in  Prose  Interpretation, Hiram competed in Poetry, and Ryan in Foreign Extempt. Samantha made the Semi-final round, then the Finals, ultimately  placing 6th.

    Twenty two  El Paso and area schools were at the tournament, and although Samantha was the only one

to advance all four did very well, and we expect  them to be among the medalists soon, too.

    The team’s next outing will be after the new year, in McCamey. Until  then we’ll  be practicing  hard and honing our skills.

   Congratulations  for a job well done, Sam!
