Mississippi 8 Speech Conference Tournament

posted Apr 24, 2017, 8:22 AM by Sonia Strickland
The PHS speech team hosted the Mississippi 8 Conference tournament.  There were 7 schools and 200 students in attendance.  We would like to thanks Sara Beck for running a superb school store that fed all the kids and judges, and the custodians who set-up and tore down all the necessary equipment for the students to feel comfortable.  We would also like to thank Richard Fillafer for staying and running the booth for the awards ceremony.  Without all this extra support, the meet would not have been as enjoyable as it was.

The PHS speech team ended up winning the tournament leading the way with 5 All Conference Speakers (1st and 2nd) and 7 Honorable Mention All Conference Speakers (3rd and 4th).  In addition to those, we had an additional 4 students place in the top six earning additional team points.

The team was also recognized as being a Academic Gold team (Ave GPA 3.5-4.0)
