On Tuesday, April 17, the Roland-Story GEEKS held their awards breakfast. Maddie Urbanek was honored as the 2018 Outstanding Senior in Speech. In order to qualify, Urbanek participated all four years in both Large Group and Individual Speech. Above and beyond participation, the Outstanding Senior must show a deep commitment to an excellent performance and belief in the IHSSA directive that there is no greater skill than that of effective communication. Maddie Urbanek has been a positive member of both teams, providing an energy and joy that will be sorely missed next year. Her enthusiasm has been pivotal in her three invitations to All State, the highest honor available to participants in the IHSSA. Kris Hull, who directed Maddie all four years in Reader’s Theatre, presented the award. Contributed photo
