Joliet Central High School Speech Team senior member Angelica Jarrett made JTHS

proud as the Original Comedy Finalist at the IHSA Speech State Tournament in Peoria on February 17th and 18th, 2017.

Jarrett finished in sixth place overall in the entire state of Illinois based on her exceptional performance of an "Original Comedy", an oral presentation of a unique 8-minute comedic script written by the student. The Joliet Central High School Speech Team is coached by Joe Hoyt and Ashley Samsa.

"In checking the IHSA State Final Round records, Angelica was the first Joliet Township student from either school to make finals at the IHSA Speech State Tournament in at least the last 21 years - possibly the first ever," said Joliet Central's Speech Head Coach, Joe Hoyt. "We've worked very hard to build a Speech Team at Central and want to celebrate this amazing accomplishment."
