I love that the speech team at Concordia tries to represent the values of the school in the pieces we choose. We try to show Christ’s love through how we perform.
Marol Feickert was on the stage crew for one of Concordia’s theatre productions when the director of the show (and director of the speech and debate team), Joy Johnson, asked her if she was interested in forensics. “I didn’t even know what that was,” Marol remembers, “She told me that I should try out for forensics and said I could get a scholarship if I made the team.”
Marol loves practicing and competing in speech, now that she’s got some experience under her belt. “The forensics team doesn’t take up your whole life,” she says. “You’re able to do other things, too. You might devote a good chunk of time to forensics, but you can still participate in theatre, choir, sports, or whatever else you want to be a part of.”
She also loves that the speech team at Concordia tries to represent the values of the school in the pieces they choose. “Because we’re a Christian college, we’re trying to do good pieces, pieces that are appropriate. We try to show Christ’s love through how we perform,” Marol says. “We want to present ourselves as we feel God would want us to.”
