Taylor Mitchell Places 1st in Speech Competition at National Jr. Beta Conference
Florida is known for its bright, sunny days and starry nights. It's the place where dreams come true.
Those words couldn't ring any truer for eighth grader Taylor Mitchell. She placed first in the speech competition at the Jr. Beta Club's National Convention held in Orlando. She bested a crowded field of talented speakers to become tops in the nation among her peers in the highly selective Jr. Beta Club.
For her oustanding achievement, Taylor was awarded $100 by the National Jr. Beta Club!
Thanks to speech instructor Mrs. LaRita Wilson who began working with Taylor in elementary school in addition to a strong English Language Arts (ELA) curricula, a sound verbal/linguistic foundation was laid years ago. Every child at The Imani School is exposed to a proper speech education beginning in kindergarten. Our speech program coupled with our annual end-of-the-year productions provide an outlet for our students to not only become successful, but lead others to boot!
