There are a variety of organizations available at Canfield High school for the students to join. One that’s appealing to Dominic DeRamo is Speech and Debate.

DeRamo said “I’m part of the Speech and Debate team and I’m very dedicated to that.”

Speech and Debate has gotten him involved in other topic areas that he didn’t think he would be interested in, particularly government and politics.

DeRamo said that “going into politics is something that's very important but I think it's even kind of undervalued in society.”

DeRamo has been involved in Speech and Debate since he was a freshman and he's wrapping up his third year at Canfield High school. His goal for this year is “aiming for finals which is the top 6 in the state.”

He has many different unique ways of preparing for state. He goes home every night and usually reads news articles, he also has a variety of around ten news apps on his phone to know what’s going on around him, and he is constantly is giving practice speeches.

“I love competing and the energy around competitions is exhilarating,” DeRamo said.

DeRamo says that “I definitely think that speech and debate has shaped my life in the sense that it has given me intrest in law and politics.”

To conclude, he says that “over the summer I went to visit and tour Ohio State, It was awesome to go and see the campus and just how big everything is.”

“Ohio State is definitely a possibility,” DeRamo said.
