Potter-Dix Speech Team Going to State
March 9, 2022 | View PDF
Chandell Oleson has been the head coach for five years and has had the privilege of working with Assistant Coach Morgan Boots for four of those years. In 2019 Potter-Dix brought home the state title and we would love to do it again.
We have a very talented group of students. Some of these students have been doing plays and acting together since the first grade. To take 13 events to State is a big accomplishment.
These students will perform their speeches at State on March 18th at the Kearney High School.
Potter-Dix will hold a public speech night on March 15th at 6:30 p.m.
