I just want to take this time to recognize Sarah Long and Nancy Saionz for all their hard work they put into the Iowa State Speech Contest held at Clinton High School last Saturday.
This is the first time either one of these ladies had prepared to host a state contest.
I know that they spent countless hours working day and night preparing for the 100-plus schools and over 3,000 people who attended this event.
I know it takes more than just a couple people to pull this off and I know that they had some great volunteers as well as Clinton High administrators to help with everything, but to put this all together comes down to these two ladies.
From my standpoint everything ran very smoothly and Saturday was a huge success. Congratulations and thank you Sarah and Nancy!
Sandy Mussman, Clinton
