THUNDER BAY – The New Directions Speakers’ School held its speech presentations and graduation at Thunder Bay City Hall tonight. The graduates presented their speeches to a full audience, and a panel of evaluators.
New Directions Speakers’ School was founded in 2008 as a part of the Thunder Bay Injured Workers Support Group. The school provides a free 14 week program that assists people to learn public speaking and leadership on social justice issues.
Speakers presented very powerful, thought provoking messages, some which left members of the audience shedding tears.
NetNewsLedger was in attendance at the graduation ceremonies, and over the next days will be sharing presentations of the speeches that the graduates presented at City Hall tonight.
The speakers were evaluated by Michael Sobota, Ann Magiskan, and Monique Woolnought.
Thunder Bay Superior North MP Bruce Hyer, and Thunder Bay City Councillors Frank Pullia, Paul Pugh, and Andrew Foulds were in attendance.
