One Laredo high school student makes the tough decision to miss her senior prom for a speech competition and comes home a winner. Alexander senior Kassandra Garcia won second place in the Impromptu speaking event at the Future Educators of America conference in Orlando, Fla. "I really did not expect it. I did not expect it. I was going up against a lot of people from everywhere and I thought all odds were against me. So it was a very amazing feeling seeing my name up there that I had gotten second place out of everyone." Garcia competed against 30 other students from all across the nation.
