Unlike previous years where STA juniors have stood before their peers in the gymnasium, this year’s Junior Speech Finalists delivered their final presentations electronically via Zoom. One by one, the Finalists stood behind the podium and in front of the video camera as their speeches were transmitted to each classroom. Their fellow Saints were treated to a variety of well-written, convincing arguments presented with inflection, eye contact, posture, and poise. Once again, Saints Pride took center stage as our community witnessed the art of fine persuasion at its best.
Congratulations to all of the juniors who pocketed their nerves and rose to the occasion of public speaking to honor this annual STA tradition. A special salute to the Top 10 Finalists (listed below) for spending so much time preparing, practicing, and polishing their performances. And an enthusiastic round of applause for the students who earned First, Second, and Third place as voted upon by the STA faculty, staff, and students.
Saints Pride! #saintspride #stalux #luxintenebris
