Speech National Champ, UIndy Junior Jason Kegerreis

Junior Jason Kegerreis did not start his college career timidly. As a member of the Forensics Team, Jason takes the stage in speech meets around the nation to showcase his talents in public speaking. Jason earned a spot to compete as a freshman in the National Forensics Association meet—and proceeded to place first in each preliminary round before taking the national title in the Impromptu Sales event. “I love speech team,” he says, “because it’s like a community where we all bring our different beliefs and ideologies, and come together to address and discuss issues that affect all of us. Plus, everyone is so close. Most of us stay friends outside of tournaments.”
