Thundering Word to perform in showcase

Members of Marshall University’s Thundering Word speech and debate team will perform in a showcase 7:30 p.m. Friday in Corbly Hall 105.
The team will perform for the home crowd in preparation for the National Forensic Association Tournament April 15 at Ohio University.
Thundering Word members will perform prose, poetry, persuasive orations and more.
In mid-March, the Thundering Word placed sixth in Individual Event Sweepstakes at the Pi Kappa Delta National Convention Tournament in Athens, Ohio.
David Wellman, director of communications, said Marshall’s debate team is highly competitive, considering its low number of 11 members.
“They have consistently performed well against some of the best teams in the country, many of whom field larger squads than Marshall,” Wellman said. “We are very proud of coach Danny Ray and his talented group that makes up our speech and debate team. They continue to improve year after year.”
The event is free to the public.
Personal hygiene items will be collected at the door with proceeds benefiting the Huntington City Mission.
