Congrats to one of our Drum Majors, Colton Conley, on this amazing achievement!
In 2019, Colton competed in the Extemporaneous Speaking event in FFA, which involves each member to select a topic at random and formulate a 4 to 6 minute speech with only a 30 minute preparation period. Colton won the Louisiana State Extemporaneous Speaking competition in 2019, but unfortunately never got to compete at the national level due to COVID 19 shutting down the convention. But, Colton decided to compete again, taking 1st place in state in 2021 as well. This past Tuesday, he competed in the preliminary round of the national competition, where 47 competitors from across the nation compete for the top 16 spots to move on to round 2, and on Friday we found out that Colton was one of our winners! Now that he has made it through the first round, he will go on to compete in Indianapolis, Indiana in October at a chance for a National Title in Extemporaneous Speaking! Congratulations Colton and good luck in Indianapolis!
