Over the weekend, 2022-23 senior Jed Adams, our former Northmor FFA president, competed in the Prepared Public Speaking CDE at the Big E (Eastern States Exposition). The Big E is an invitation only event in which speakers and other CDE participants from eastern states, as well as a few midwestern states, are invited to compete against some of the best speakers in the region.
After delivering a carefully crafted speech, Jed won the Prepared Public Speaking CDE.
It is a great honor to have a representative from Northmor win an event at the Big E. Additionally, Northmor was not the only school from District 2 to have a representative attending. Colonel Crawford’s Sydney Stirm also competed at the Big E in the Creed Speaking CDE. Sydney managed to take first place in her CDE as well.
This was a huge accomplishment for Northmor, as well as District 2 and Ohio FFA. This was Jed’s last public speaking event as a high school FFA member, and we thank him for all he has contributed to Northmor FFA over the past four years.
Congrats to Jed Adams, first-place winner of the Prepared Public Speaking CDE at the Eastern States Exposition!
