Katy McMillan defeated two other contestants at the San Marcos Toastmasters Club Annual Spring Speech Contest in February, with her speech called “Manners in Today’s Society.”
Advancing in the Toastmasters arena to the area contest in New Braunfels March 8, Katy again convinced the judges, and won the area speech contest.
Continuing on in April, Katy will represent the area, and compete at the division level.
Katy has been a member of the San Marcos Toastmasters Club for a little over a year. Living in San Marcos, Katy is an educator and travel agent.
“Toastmasters has renewed my self-confidence, and has given me support to believe in myself, and helped challenge me to be more and achieve more.” Katy explained.
“Thanks to Toastmasters I’ve been able to learn how to become more organized in my thinking and my speeches. I have also learned to be more professional, and have improved my intercommunication skills with co-workers and friends.” Katy continued.
Toastmasters is the world’s largest nonprofit educational organization devoted to communications and leadership development.
