What we're all about

The Rowan County Sr HS Speech Team is one of Kentucky's most successful high school programs. Since 1984, the program has served to offer students a proper education in oral communication. Through classroom curriculum and competitive tournaments, the team prides itself in preparing students for their future careers with speaking and leadership skills which last a lifetime. Alumni of the team have gone on to be highly successful business men & women, lawyers, physicians, college professors, actors, bureaucrats, scientists, publicists, musicians...and list goes on and on.   

Providing this education is not cheap. There are many costs associated with competitive speech: tournament fees, transportation, hotels, professional attire, meals, coaching, etc. The average cost for one member to participate for one year is close to $1000, not including extra national level tournaments. We are fortunate to have a board of education and parent booster organization who are financially supportive of what we do. But that money only goes so far. 

We rely heavily on the support of kind benefactors like you! Please consider making a donation to our team. No matter if its $10, $100, or $1,000, every amount helps.

  • Almost halfway there!

    Wow! It has not even been two weeks since I began our fundraiser on Edco to send the Rowan County Speech Team qualifiers to Nationals, and we have almost raised HALF of our $5000 goal! We currently sit at $2125, meaning we only need $375 more to officially reach the halfway mark. Can we hit $2500 by the end of the weekend? Donate and help us get there! Thanks to everyone who has donated thus far! Without the help of our supporters, our students would not be given this wonderful opportunity to sharpen their oral communications skills. Thank you, gracias, merci, danke, domo, and any other way you want to say it!
