Scholastic Spotlight: Jerome High School
Eleven out of fourteen years Jerome has won the state title in speech competition.
Speech Coach Scott Burton says, "we just reload, so our kids teach other kids. It's a really good machine."
And despite kids graduating over that time the program has continued to do well.
"We have a slogan of, tradition doesn't graduate."
Speech Team President Lizzie Quinley says, "my first year when we won I didn't know what to expect.. form then on we've always won."
Quinley still gets nervous before a competition but that doesn't slow her down.
"I just think in my head if I'm passionate about the topic I'm talking about I'm going to have that passion inside of me."
