Hinckley, Ohio woman talks her way into the Toastmasters International public speaking championships

Yesterday I found this newspaper article about Maureen Zappala’s journey in public speaking. On August 15th she will be representing Region 6 in the Toastmasters International championships.

The story headline caught my eye because Hinckley, Ohio is known mostly for celebrating the impending arrival of spring by the annual return of the turkey buzzards on March 15th. They have been celebrating that event since 1957.

Back on March 31 I discussed Toastmasters speech contests, and the long road leading up to the championships. It would be wonderful if Hinckley gets publicity for something else other than turkey buzzards. The buzzard clip art image is from here.
