Custer chapter president Remington Miklos ran for Region I president at this year’s meeting. He was to do an interview, knowledge test and present a speech regarding his knowledge of the organization. During his presentation to Region I chapters, there were voting delegates throughout the crowd who scored him on his physical appearance, speech and three analogy questions. After all voting, delegate score cards were looked over and it was announced he will be the 2020-21 Region I president.
“I’m very proud of all of our chapters’ accomplishments. We will be working very hard over the next few months to prepare for the state conference April 26-28,” Newman said.
