Pollock Places At Forensics Nationals

It was the final speech of his high school career. It was also the final round at the 2009 National Forensic League tournament. With only 30 minutes to prepare for a seven-minute speech, Mt. Lebanon graduate Ryan Pollock was feeling a flood of emotion.

"It was a pretty big auditorium so that was a little bit daunting," he said. "I knew it was going to be the last speech I'd ever give in high school so it was that element of excitement and fun and nervousness."

Pollock's speech on globalization earned him a spot in the top six finalists at the International Extemporaneous Speaking portion of the national tournament. He competed against nearly 250 other students from across the country.
