Ms. Ruppert was a shy kid when she joined her high school speech team back in the 8th grade. Ever since, she has dreamed of helping other students find their voices through this unique extracurricular, which is why she started the PACT team in 2016. She believes that well-spoken teenagers can change the world.
Of all the extracurriculars that Ms. Douglas has helped out with, Speech is by far her favorite. The art of telling stories and helping students find their sometimes hidden or undiscovered talents is the greatest thing in the world to be a part of. It’s not just about over coming stage fright: it’s about finding your voice and learning to speak into the lives of the people around you, whether it’s through stories, poetry, or analyzing current issues.
