Benton senior Kenna Kline entered her second year of individual speech with the goal of reaching All-State in her final season. Kline performed a public address of a speech originally made by U.S Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York on July 23, 2020 against former Rep. Ted Yoho of Florida.

“It means a lot to me as a woman and having to see someone accosted in everyday life,” Kline said. “I was trying to bring out that everyone goes through name calling. If that can happen to someone in politics like AOC, it can happen to everyone.”

Due to Covid-19 and venues across the state being unavailable to host, in person or virtual performances will not be held this year. Medals, certificates and All-State banners will be sent to the schools.
