All Rise! Here Comes the Judge!
by Marcheta Gardner DTM District Director
No, not that kind of judge … lol. This month’s outstanding toastmaster represents the essence of hard work, diving right in and doing “what needs to be done!” Our District Chief Judge, formerly known as Larry Prince, came in mid-year to take on this role and basically inhaled all things for judging, on behalf of the District. He calmly yet effectively studied the contest book, pulled together scripts for judges, emerged himself in judges training, with former District Chief Judges … and more! That’s a-lot right!!! I’m out of breath just stating all that.
AND, to top it all off, Larry has designated this experience as a DTM project! This is contributing to his progress in Pathways! Larry is representing us on so many levels!
He effectively organized judges and chief judge training, secured judges and chief judges for contests … without a hitch … smooth sailing! In fact, at our training in January, he came so prepared; it was as if he’d been in the role all year!
While judges are not publicly acknowledged at contests, please join me in congratulating Larry Prince as our Toastmaster of the Month!
