If you had the opportunity to raise your level of confidence, would you take it?

Marshall students Phoenix Braxton-Brown and Sahen Rai leaped at this opportunity when they discovered the many wonders of Marshall's speech team. Students benefit from a litany of skills they gain while on the team: critical thinking, time management, speaking with purpose and structure, thinking before talking, organization, an understanding of human psychology, and more, but they agree that confidence far exceeds everything else.

"Before this year, whenever I went up to speak, I was always shy and spoke as quietly as possible and with as few words as possible," Braxton-Brown said. "But once you get to that level, that's one of the things that you have to have—you have to have a lot of confidence in order to actually speak and be successful."

And be successful, they have. Marshall tied for second as a team at sectionals, and five individuals are now moving on to compete at the MSHSL State Tournament this Saturday, April 22 in Apple Valley. Joining Braxton-Brown and Rai at state is Jack Schenk, Kellyn McKee, and Zachary Kaplan.

Monday, March 13, our community unites to demonstrate this excellence via the Marshall Fine Arts Showcase. This annual show has been a tradition for many years, and students beautifully reveal the heart of Marshall through their pieces. Done in partnership with Zeitgeist Arts, the event is a celebration of Youth Art Month. "We try to pick work that really showcases what we've been learning," Burns said, "or maybe a student really pushed their own boundaries and we're really proud of them."
