There are eight people in Mrs. McCarthy’s Toastmasters advisory, they call themselves The Soaring Hawks Gavel Club.Recently they became certified through the official Toastmasters society. This is a huge accomplishment for all involved. Each student had to speak for a minimum of a one minute and most of them surpassed that time frame.
A skill people can learn from debate is understanding other people's opinions, another skill that can be learned is overcoming being shy and nervous. Toastmasters has been around for 50 years. This name was chosen because it is like a toast at a wedding. Toastmasters started when people wanted to get comfortable speaking and practicing toasts. Great job to Mrs. McCarthy and her students.
