TLDSB student wins three public speaking competitions 

A Trillium Lakelands District School Board student is being recognized for her wins in the Royal Canadian Legion’s Public Speaking Competitions. 

Officials say Huntsville High School (HHS) Grade 12 student Carolyn Yungblut took home first place in three levels of the competition, with her speech about health, wellness, and fitness in young adults. They add the district-level win on March 23 also earned her the Joyce Dermott Annual Memorial Trophy, which is now displayed at HHS. 

She’s moving onto the area-level competition in Shelburne on April 20. 

“I am grateful that my words were able to connect with the audience and judges in a meaningful, inspiring way,” said Yungblut. “Overall, I love the competition and was very proud to represent my town of Huntsville and Huntsville High School. I’m also very grateful for all the support I’ve received from my family and teachers the last few weeks. I wouldn’t be where I am without their help.” 

Yungblut added she’s received a grant from the Public Health Agency of Canada to start up fitness sessions for high school students, which have already started at HHS.
