Speaking of Winning

Deanna Morrison

Deanna Morrison, semi-finalist in the 2012 International Speech competition, showed us what the next level looks like: poised, confident and powerful.

Deanna visited us on Saturday, July 21, to rehearse her speech, “DNR.” She cleverly used the medical order “Do Not Resuscitate” as a metaphor about not giving up on your life’s dreams. It was both poignant and humorous, which is no small trick.

Deanna, a District 47 member whose home club is in Nassau, The Bahamas,  will compete in the semi-finals August 16 at the International Convention in Orlando. If she wins, she’ll move on to the finals August 18. Good luck, Deanna!
