The Jesters, coached by Mario Herrera and Lisa Willoughby, took home the gold at last weekend’s Varsity State Speech and Debate Championship held at the University of North Georgia in Gainesville.
Numerous individual Grady students won awards. According to VaHi Patch, senior Isabelle Taft captured two state titles, one in extemporaneous speaking and one in impromptu speaking. The twin titles were noteworthy because with them, Taft has won more state championships than any individual competitor in the history of the organization.

Congrats to Ms. Taft and the Grady High Jesters from The Voice!
