Gammon considers her most significant achievement so far to be the improvement in her public speaking skills.
“I started participating in the 4-H communications speeches and demonstrations four years ago, and since then, I have seen many improvements in my public speaking skills,” she said. “I feel more confident and comfortable speaking in front of large people after participating in several speeches. Over the past four years, I have competed at the district, area, and state levels along with the State Fair, and I am very proud of my improvements.”
