Meghan Chen   Meghan Chen (President)           Hi! My name is Meghan Chen and I’m so excited to be your speech & debate president this year! Since I’ve started speech in eighth grade, I’ve competed in Impromptu, Original Oratory, POI, Original Performance, and Public Forum Debate, and I’d love to help you with all those events and their categories. Outside of speech and debate, I enjoy almost anything music related, including playing the piano and composition, and I spend a lot of time hanging out with my dog, Lucy. Can’t wait to meet you this year! My email is meghanchen2004@gmail.com and my phone number is (317) 499-1660.
Kaelyn Tai   Kaelyn Tai (Vice President)           Hi! I'm Kaelyn Tai and a senior this year. Since 8th grade, I've had experience in Poetry, POI, Original Performance, and Public Forum debate. In my free time I obsess over my two cats and enjoy spicy food. I’m excited to help others enjoy, improve, and thrive in our team this year, so if you have any questions or comments, you can contact me at kaelyntai5622@gmail.com.
Manvitha Veeramreddy   Manvitha Veeramreddy (Officer)           Hello! I’m Manvitha Veeramreddy and I’m going to be a senior this year. I’m very excited to be a captain! This is my 4th year of speech and over the years, I’ve done Extemp and Info. I started speech my freshman year because I enjoyed it in junior high, but I was greeted with an entirely different experience. Being a part of speech team fosters individuality, confidence and it’s the epitome of how to grow as a team. Outside of speech, my hobbies and pastimes include reading, coding, listening to music and spending time with friends. I’m looking forward to an amazing new season with you all! My contact is manvi.veera@gmail.com if you need me.
Srilekha Davuluri   Srilekha Davuluri (Officer)           Hey! I'm Srilekha Davuluri and I'm going to be a Junior this year. I have extensive experience in Public Forum debate. I'm involved in a myriad of clubs, so I'm always busy, but I'm still always ready to help you improve! Please contact me at davulsri000@hsestudents.org if you have any questions!
Avery Hanefeld   Avery Hanefeld (Coach)           Hi I’m Avery, I’m a junior and this is my third year doing speech and debate! I do congress, original oratory, and most importantly radio, although I will probably add another event this year. I love speech so much, but when I’m not working on speech I like baking, listening to music, and watching basketball. I can’t wait to have a great season! You can contact me at averyhanefeld@gmail.com or 317-646-3153.
Kennedy Terhune   Kennedy Terhune (Coach)           Hi! I’m Kennedy, and I’ll be a Junior for the school year of 2021-2022. I’ve stuck with Congress since my freshman year, which has allowed me to learn from state, districts, and nationals. Additionally, I regularly compete in U.S Extemp, where I’ve also competed locally and nationally. Although my specialty is most useful in the lens of debate and limited prep, I have some familiarity with Interp as well. I hope to be a good resource for anyone who needs it, and I’m excited to be one of the 2021-2022 Speech&Debate leaders! You can contact me through terhuken000@hsestudents.org and (317)847-7760.

I focus on original oratory and informative, but I've also competed in program oral interpretation and impromptu. Outside of speech I'm a member of the National Honor Society, Best Buddies, and my church youth group. I like to read and hang out with friends. I can't wait for a great season this year! You can contact me by emailing emkornelsen@gmail.com
