Diocesan Speech League
The Dallas Diocesan Speech League was organized to promote and encourage excellence in speech and performance by sponsoring a diversified program of speech activities for middle school students.
UNFORTUNATELY there will be NO Speech & Drama meets during the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19.
