Ayla Boylen also presented a poetry piece.

Victoria Van Wey performed her solo musical theater piece at Sunday’s speech showcase.

Catie Lang shared an informative original oratory presentation about recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST) in milk cows.

Tristan Meyer performed two pieces at the showcase—one storytelling piece about why a spider has eight legs and another acting piece about pet peeves.

Sheree Scarff also performed twice, including one literary program and a prose selection.

At the end of the showcase, the group of Ashley Heins, Chloe Landt and Catie Lang did an improvisation performance. Lang played a woman talking to herself in the bathroom, while Landt and Heins waited impatiently outside.

Here, Heins and Landt practice meditation to keep their bladders under control while they wait for Lang and her friend Karen to leave the bathroom.
