CONNgratulations Jef Conn!

Llano Estacado Toastmasters' very own Jef Conn won the Area 61 Table Topics contest on Saturday, March 7, 2015, in Lubbock, Texas.

Jef will go on to compete in the Division F contest in Lubbock on April 11th and, hopefully, on to the District 23 contest after that.

Table Topics is a long-standing Toastmasters tradition intended to help members develop their ability to organize their thoughts quickly and respond to an impromptu question or topic. During a club meeting, members will typically get different questions from each other. During a contest, each contestant receives the same question (those who have yet to compete must wait outside so as not to have the advantage of additional time to think) and the judges choose the person who provides the best response based upon a number of factors.

CONNgratulations Jef! Do us proud!

Llano Estacado turned out in force to support our contestants:
L to R: Kathy Puryear (International Speech contestant,) Cliff Colvin,

Taryn Colvin, Jef Conn (Table Topics Contestant.)
