Hennessey Speech Club: Creating Future Leaders

Speech and debate programs do more than let students’ debate in competitions. They are more than simply electives that some might see as unimportant. Rather, these programs provide experiences that last a lifetime, while teaching skills that students can take with them long after high school.

Hennessey High School’s English Teacher and Director of Speech and Debate, Linda Soudek, teaches her students basic public speaking skills.

Soudek has taught in Hennessey for six years, with her first year being at Hennessey Middle School. During her second year in Hennessey, she moved over to the high school and started the Speech and Debate program, which is now in its fifth year.
