Telling the way to state

Email News Alerts

Yesterday, Bethany Haugan told a story. She used lots of character appeal, voices and actions.

Haugan was competing at state in speech. Accompanying her were Jamie Blackburn, Lindsey Boller and Whitney Westley as alternates.

All four Detroit Lakes High School seniors compete in a different category, and Haugan's is storytelling. At competitions, she must draw three folk stories from a pool of 15 and then decide which she is going to tell. Her favorite is "Talk."
