Kelly Brockett All-State Nomination By Sadie Brockett
April 14, 2016
An active year for the Gladbrook-Reinbeck High School Speech Team came to an end with senior Kelly Brockett’s All-State performance on April 5. Twenty-four Individual Speech events were performed at the districts competition on February 27. Fourteen of those events went on to perform at the state competition on March 12. On March 4 and 6, many of these events were performed for the community to see at the annual Speech Showcase held in the GRHS Auditorium. Brockett was one of our Individual Speech participants this year. At the districts competition, she received a 1 (the best score possible) from the judge and advanced to state. She performed at state for three judges, receiving two 1s and a 2. To go on to All-State, she had to be nominated and selected by the judges. It is very difficult to make it to All-State, so it’s a big honor for Brockett to be representing G-R. She performed at All-State on the University of Northern Iowa campus. Brockett said, “I almost didn’t do Individual Speech this year, but now I’m really glad that I did. It was a lot of fun, and going to All-State was a huge honor.” Congratulations to all of our Speech participants this year.
