Tramanh Hoang completed her four year forensic career at Dobie High School in excellent fashion at the National Forensic League National Tournament in Birmingham, Ala.
This was Hoang's fifth national competition representing Dobie High in forensic competitions. Hoang placed thirteenth in the nation for original oratory out of 200 competitors.
There were over 3,000 students from across the U.S. and Hawaii vying for the national titles in ten different events. Hoang earned the right to compete in original oratory; a ten minute memorized original speech written by the student. Hoang's oratory was entitled, Domo Arrigato, Mr. Roboto, addressing society's issue with mental slavery and people can free themselves from this type of confinement.
