Lots of Acronyms Today

As part of her theme for the day, Toastmaster Stacy Cain discussed acronyms and initialism. Coincidentally, both of these really came to light today as we had a visit from an AG and we presented a member with a CC badge.

Area Governor Ernee Kozyreff attended Llano Estacado Toastmasters club today for the first of two official visits and spoke about what it means to be a Distinguished Club.  Ernee is the governor of Area 61 and Llano Estacado is in Area 61 along with three other clubs in Lubbock.  The other five clubs in Lubbock belong to Area 62.
Ernee talks about being distinguished.

Dustin Wells also came back after an extended break this summer while he's been working and was presented with his Competent Communicator badge by Stacy, his mom, and Amber Marsh, our club president.

Darya's First Speech

Today Darya gave her first speech at Llano Estacado Toastmasters.  We got a sneak peek at some future speeches as she told us about growing up in Russia, moving to the United States, to Texas, and eventually to Lubbock.

Congratulations Darya!
