Open to students in grades 9-12, GWA Gavel Club is a high school version of Toastmasters International. Once a month, students and faculty/parent sponsors gather at the Monroe Country Club for an evening of dinner, speeches, and fun. Every meeting brings different speech topics, and members become comfortable with giving speeches and evaluating others’ speeches as well.
Awards are given for best speech and best speech evaluator each month. Gavel members who deliver 10 speeches by the end of their senior year receive the rank of “Competent Toastmaster” and receive a pin and special graduation recognition.
