Hey Griffins Forensics is back!! Here is an interesting fact that may surprise you…the #1 FEAR of MOST people…is NOT the fear of spiders or heights…. NOPE! It’s the FEAR of SPEAKING in Public. You know…. sweaty palms, racing thoughts, pounding heart, nervous twitching…THAT feeling you get when you’re about to speak in front of class…MANY of us would rather run out of the classroom than get up and talk in front of people. WELL. If you want to learn how to shake those jitters and speak in public without fainting, THEN come to a forensics informational meeting, Nov. 9th from 3:30 to 4:15 in room A12. See Ms. Burton for more information.”
