And so it begins…State is coming

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a lot of information for all the State tournaments.  You will see above a new tab, for the State tournaments, which will link you to published information.

One key item of note is the procedure for created and submitting the team Roster; that procedure is described on the Roster page, above.

Sad News from NOHS

It is with a heavy heart that North Oldham High School Speech Team Coach,  Rosemary Cundiff-Brown,  shares the passing of 2007 graduate,  Michael Conver.

Michael was a four-year member of the NOHS Speech Team,  an NCFL competitor in Declamation,  and a consistent KHSSL State semifinalist and finalist (Prose,  HI,  and Improv Duo).  He was also a regular actor in NOHS stage productions.

“Snicks” was a sweet soul who made everyone laugh with his wit and sense of humor.   He will truly be missed by his family,  friends,  coach,  and alumni team members.

His obituary is available here.
