After five years, Harrison County High School has a new speech champion.
Aaron Williams, a senior at HCHS, won extemporaneous speaking at the Kentucky High School Speech League held March 13-16 at Western Kentucky University.
“This was the cumulation of four years,” said Williams, who began the event in middle school.
Participants in extemp are given a political question to answer and 30 minutes to prepare a seven minute speech.
“You don’t actually write out the speech,” said Williams.
