Spring Conference a HUGE Success !

Division A was well represented at the District 53 Spring conference / Leadership Summit. Croix Sather, of WestConn Toastmasters, took home the trophy for 2nd Runner-up in the Tall Tales contest and Nana Danso, of BI Toastmasters, took home FIRST PLACE in the International Speech contest!

We are very proud of both of them and we will wish Nana the best of luck at the Regional contest ! (More information on this will be posted in case you want to attend a regional conference and see Nana compete.)

We should also point out that this was Nana's first conference (as shown by the "First Timer Ribbon" that was next to his trophy ... or at least I assume that it was his). It just goes to show that while experience might help, it is not always the complete recipe for success !

This was Croix's second year on the District stage and I'm sure we will all agree that it will certainly not be his last!

Pictures below include Croix along with the other Tall Tales winners, Phil Shay and Joe Zafian as well as Croix's Tall Tale "interview" session prior to the announcement of the winners.
