CC Badges & AG Ribbons!

Congratulations to Llano Estacado Toastmasters' members Taryn Colvin, Kerry Mobley, and Amber Marsh for their recent achievements in communication and leadership.

Putting their public speaking skills to good use over the last year, Taryn Colvin and Kerry Mobley each completed their Competent Communication awards and received their CC name badges from the club. Along the way, both took advantage of opportunities to speak outside our club. Taryn competed in a number of contests, making it all the way to the District 23 International Speech contest. Kerry assisted with several demonstration meetings, including speaking at one of the largest demonstration meetings in the history of our district. Congratulations Taryn & Kerry!

Becoming a better public speaker isn't the only thing we focus on. Leadership is another important facet of our development. Kerry Mobley and Amber Marsh, both members of Llano Estacado Toastmasters here in Lubbock, Texas, are also the two Area Governors for Lubbock. Amber is the Area 61 Governor and Kerry is the Area 62 Governor. Each of them assist five clubs in Lubbock as well as participating in a number of district events. They recently received their "Home Club of an Area Governor" ribbons which will be added to Llano Estacado's club banner. Thank you Kerry & Amber for representing Lubbock and Llano Estacado!
