Shelton orator heading to state

Peck will compete in Ephrata on March 11-12

Shelton High School senior Katherine Peck said her friends and relatives call her a "poli-sci nerd," and that knowledge and her presentation skills are propelling her to a statewide contest.

Peck is the winner of the American Legion Post 31's annual Constitutional Speech Contest conducted Jan. 8 at the American Legion Veterans Hall in downtown Shelton. She will represent the post at the state contest March 11-12 in Ephrata, with the opportunity to win scholarship money and the chance to advance to the national contest in Indianapolis. The national winner will receive a $25,000 scholarship.
