Legacy Traditional Academy hosted its annual speech competition sponsored by Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial on Wednesday. Two junior high students and a sixth grader got top honors out of a dozen competitors.

This year’s theme was “What does it mean to be a hero?”

Kathy Thach won first place, with Lana Rhode in second. Sixth-grader Mia Chavez placed third in the tight competition.

Local winners go onto county, state and national competitions, where cash prizes are on the line.
