Thanks from Columbus speech and drama team

Letter to the Editor
Thursday, December 6, 2018

I’d like to take a minute to thank the numerous people who made the Columbus Invitational speech and drama meet on Nov. 17 a huge success.

My assistant coach, Melissa Ranstrom, was critical to the success of the meet, as was the support of Columbus School’s administration and staff. Almost every classroom in all three schools was used in the competition.

Eighty-six of our county’s citizens volunteered as judges and in staffing and stocking the hospitality room.  In addition, Parks Realty and Beartooth Ford donated funds in support of the hospitality room, which fed judges and volunteers, 34 coaches, and 16 bus drivers.

Over 256 students from across Montana were provided with challenge, opportunity and camaraderie thanks to our wonderful community!
