On top of all of that, this spring Jeanne has been tapped to help make difficult decisions about tournament operations for the safety and well-being of students throughout your district. In these challenging times, the leadership and input that Jeanne offers our national organization is more valuable than ever. While this spring hasn't gone the way we expected, one thing we know for sure is that Jeanne has made a big difference in the lives of students this year.
This week is National Volunteer Week, and we are proud to celebrate the commitment that Jeanne has made to help students in your area access speech and debate. Without Jeanne, our community would not be what it is today. Moreover, the future of our activity would not be as bright.
