Jordan Scholar JJ Kapur Named National Speech Champion


JJ Kapur, Jordan Scholar class of 2017, recently competed in the National Speech and Debate Championships. After 13 rounds of competition, JJ was named the National Champion in Original Oratory.

Titled "Let's Dance," JJ's composition is one of passion, insight, humor and takes a look at the narratives we all use in our daily lives. The West Des Moines Historical Society couldn't be more proud of this young leader and wish him, and all the amazing young people who have been part of the Jordan Scholars program, the best.
