TYLER – John Tyler High School speech and debate students Tacorian Tilley and Triston Ferguson have qualified for the National Speech and Debate Association National Tournament. It will be held in Montgomery, Alabama in June. Tacorian will compete in Foreign Extemporaneous Speaking and Triston in Congressional Debate. Classmate Jose Romero earned an Alternate spot in Congressional Debate. To prepare for the national tournament, Tacorian and Triston will spend the next few months researching current events and practicing various speaking styles and tactics. They will be concentrating on details such as speaking slowly and clearly, voice pitch and articulation. This will be the second time in three years students from John Tyler High School have advanced to the National Tournament. After high school, Tacorian plans to attend the University of North Texas to major in communications and minor in political science. Hopeful for a career in politics, Triston plans to attend Hillsdale College in Michigan.
