Just Say Yes – Ebony wins at Division
More than half a dozen Ebonites turned up at the Canadian Tire Conference Centre on Wednesday, March 30th to support our very own Sandra Thompson as she competed in the Division H Spring Contest. Fellow Ebonite and 2015 District 60 Humourous Speech Contest winner Assata McKenzie chaired the event.
Sandra’s speech, Just Say Yes, garnered her a first place win in the International Speech category, edging out Mark Jeremie, who placed second. Mark won first place in March 7th’s Area 72 Spring Contest, where both qualified to participate in Wednesday’s event.
Ebony Toastmasters President, Rita Burke, recalls the event: “It was truly the sweetest victory ever for Ebony. There was not a flaw, not a wart, not a blemish. Just say yes was robust, energetic, and humourous.”
Sandra will represent Division H at the Toastmasters International district conference on Saturday, April 16th at Holiday Inn Toronto-Yorkdale. Get your tickets below. Tickets to attend only the speech contest are $25.
