Congratulations to the Speech Team

Congratulations to the IKM-Manning High School speech team for their outstanding performance at state Individual Events contest yesterday in Storm Lake. I am so proud of the hard work of these students and their performances at state contest. Last year, state contest was cancelled in person as the coronavirus spread throughout the state. This is the first time in two years that our students have been able to perform face-to-face at state IE contest. They were so excited to perform and to be able to watch the performances of other students. They are an incredibly supportive of each other and I couldn't be more pleased with our results at contest.
