Jordan also placed second at the Ohio High School Speech League State Tournament March 2. Additional Norton state qualifiers were John Wroblewski, Laura Simons, Megan Stults, Jessica Baker, Jenna Pletcher, Kerstin Vaughn, Noah Ling, Eamon McGuire, Steven Planitzer, Natalee Stewart and Anthony Tryon.
Jordan has been working on his humorous performance with coaches and volunteers since last September, according to team officials.
The Norton Speech and Debate Team, coached by Norton teacher Tricia Pletcher and Anthony Paridon, competed against more than 290 students at Wooster High School Feb. 15-16 at the district tournament.
The team is currently fundraising to help cover travel and lodging expenses for Jordan’s trip to the national tournament in June. Checks made out to Norton City Schools can be mailed to Norton High School, 4108 S. Cleveland-Massillon Road, Norton OH 44203.
Nearly 3,000 students will participate in the national tournament. Top performers take home more than $200,000 in college scholarships.
