Oratory Program -- March 9

Featuring our Rhetoric students, the program will consist of various readings from famous literature, historical speeches, dialogues, and passages of scripture. Students will be assigned their readings shortly and should begin the process of learning these. Rehearsal dates and times will be forthcoming.
