    Hello speech and debate students of kerr,
    I think you all did wonderfully teriffically great job.
    I especially want to congratulate my long lost sister Suveda Perikala (noing a great job notice that perikala and rekalipa have the exact same letters :D) on doing a great job making third place three times…along with her friendable Muskan.
