                                         MLHS 2015-16 Speech and Debate Team

                                  Mira Loma Speech and Debate Team 2015-2016 

            We are frequently told that we live in a golden age of information and communication. Yet, at times, it seems as though while one can send a message half-way across the world in a blink of an eye, the actual skills of communication have gone by the wayside. It is these very skills which Speech and Debate aims to develop, in order to foster not only presentation skills, but also analytical skills. 

                 While many students may use their Speech and Debate experience in the fields with which it is most directly associated - law, drama, politics – many more will instead find careers in science, medicine, or engineering. Among the most powerful benefits of participating in Speech and Debate is that no matter which field a student may ultimately specialize in, the events they participate in will develop confidence, reasoning, and poise.

                   Last season was a remarkable one for the Mira Loma Speech and Debate team. This year, we hope to build on that success – not just in hopes of amassing trophies at competitions, but in developing communication skills that will serve students and their communities long after they graduate from Mira Loma. 

                    Over the course of my time as a member of this team, I have gained so much from experience at tournaments, from learning from my fellow team-members and from competitors at other schools. I am tremendously honored by the fact that you have selected me to be your president for the coming season, and I am dedicated to working to ensure that each and every student has the opportunity to come to love Speech and Debate as I have come to love it.

                     I look forward to a fantastic season. 

                     Sincerely yours, 

                     Shaina Zuber 
                     MLSD President, 2015-2016
