During the Special District 88 Board of Education meeting on July 27, the Board and administration recognized Willowbrook alumna Chloe Devens (class of 2020) for her state-level accomplishment in Speech during the 2019-20 school year.

Devens competed in Extemporaneous Speaking at the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) State Tournament, which took place on Feb. 21 and 22 at Peoria Civic Center.

Extemporaneous Speaking is a limited-preparation speech event based on research and original analysis. Participants are given 30 minutes of preparation time to compose a seven-minute speech. When preparation starts, speakers are offered three questions to answer. Questions are based on current affairs, and topic areas generally include international and domestic policy, economic policy and social or scientific issues.
