The Academy’s Lower School Speech Club celebrated a year of stellar competitions at their end-of-the-year luncheon on May 6 in the Conference Room.
Each of the Club’s 22 fifth and sixth grade members received a trophy and certificate in recognition of their teamwork and winning attitude throughout the year.
The Club, under the guidance of Susan Phillips and Jill Sprott, participated in three meets during the season at Maryknoll, Iolani and Punahou Schools. With their continued improvement as the season went on, the Punahou meet was, by far, their best showing with the speakers earning 56 out of a possible 64 “Superiors.”
Phillips concluded, “I am very proud of these students. They were always willing to try harder. They took their role in the Club very seriously, and they knew their individual performances not only affected them personally, but the team as a whole.”
