Fulton takes fifth at speech state

Red Bud Speech Team member Bailey Fulton competed and placed in the IHSA State Speech Finals held last weekend in Peoria.

Fulton is a senior at Red Bud High School and a three year speech team member.

This year marked the second year in a row that Fulton advanced to the state finals in speech. Last year he was unable to advance to the final round at state.

“My goal this year was to advance to finals. I was able to do it so I feel good about that. Fifth in the state is an accomplishment for me and the (RBHS Speech) program,” he noted.
