Three Skwim Toastmasters Club members earned high honors at recent contests.
Lindy MacLaine was first place winner of the International Speech Contest at the District level in District 101. She advances to the Region quarterfinals in June.
MacLaine placed third in the 2020 World Championship of Public Speaking.
Kyle Hall was a first place winner of the Evaluation Contest at the District level — the highest level of Evaluation competition. The local club’s district is made up of more than 2,000 Toastmasters in about 90 clubs, from Alaska to south-western Washington state.
Hall is a contest veteran, having placed third in the 2003 World Championship of Public Speaking.
ME Bartholomew was second place winner of the International Speech Contest at the area (North Olympic Peninsula) level.
All three club members share their communication wisdom as members of the local Skwim Club, and offer their expertise to Toastmasters clubs internationally.
