Danville High School placed second at the state speech tournament last weekend at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green.
The Kentucky High School Speech League's state tournament is an annual event featuring students who have advanced from regional contests held around the state in February.
DHS has placed second at this tournament three times previously, in 1998, 1999, and 2000.
This year, senior Logan Scisco led the DHS slate by defending his state championship in extemporaneous speaking, placing first in radio broadcasting and third in impromptu speaking. He also received one of two Gifford Blyton Scholarships given at the tournament. The scholarships, which honor the longtime debate coach at Western, come with cash prizes.
In a letter recommending Scisco for the scholarship, DHS coach Steve Meadows wrote, "Logan is simply one of the most dependable, hard-working, reliable students I've ever encountered - probably the most."
