Kevin definitely had his best speech at the state finals. He began writing and practicing the speech in the fall of 2012 for a class assignment. When Kevin finished the speech at state, he had a huge smile because he knew he had given his best performance ever. He saved his best for when it counted the most. The competition at the state finals was very strong as several speakers had speeches capable of being named the best in the state.
Kevin’s speech was on Kobe Bryant. He competed against 14 other students from across the state at the finals hosted at the University of Kentucky.
