Speech and Debate Team

Advisor: Amy Grondin

Purpose: The SHS speech and debate team is an organization founded on the promotion of public speaking and analytic thinking. Members are able to participate in tournaments around Oregon in which they will be able to refine their public speaking skills and learn the necessity of critical thinking. Speech and debate is a fun way to get over anxiety attacks prior to public speaking, you will never have a problem with class speeches again.

Goals: Help members gain confidence and overcome fear of public speaking; develop professional thinking and rigorous thinking skills; foster an environment of collegial debate and the free exchange of ideas.
