Speech team seeks volunteer judges
Ruston High School is looking for a few community members interested in listening to speeches, debates and theatrical performances.
The Speech and Debate Club, led by teacher Monica Olsen, is preparing for a big competition in late March, and needs approximately 45 volunteers to help students practice.
Olsen said at competitions students are judged both by coaches trained in the art and community members who are not. She said while she can train students for the coaches, it is better for untrained community members to help students prepare for the untrained judges.
