On March 27, Sonoraville High School FBLA assisted local community leader, Stacey Long, present a workshop for Red Bud Middle School FBLA. Ms. Long opened the workshop by having students properly introduce themselves to each other, noting the correct way to give a handshake and the importance of eye contact. Sonoraville leaders assisted in this process and helped the RBMS future leaders. Students learned the fundamentals of public speaking, including impromptu and extemporaneous. They learned key tips on how to succeed when competing in these events, but also how to effectively present in areas outside of competition (such as networking). After learning what it takes to make a great speech, the members implemented their new knowledge and actually presented two of their own speeches. SHS FBLA provided feedback and pointers for even better speeches. Students left feeling confident in their newfound speaking abilities!
