There are two speech classes: Middle School and High School. Both of these classes are taught by Mrs. Escalera. Experienced speech students go against other schools in the fight for the first place trophy. Each year, Ridgway brings home many of the wonderful eagle trophies. There are 7 main categories in speech... Humor, Original Oratory, Drama, Storytelling, Duet Humor, Duet Drama, Poetry, and a few more advanced categories.
