Jon Martinez SPEECH 1A Special Occasion Speech Outline Mrs. Jean Wright: A Person to Remember I.Introduction Who has had the greatest influence on your life? For many of us, a special teacher probably comes to mind. Throughout my career as a student, many teachers have come and gone and have been loved and hated, but none has had a greater impact then Mrs. Jean Wright, my senior English teacher. Certainly, all of us have had teachers who evoked strong emotions in us, both positive and negative; today I would like to pay tribute to this very special lady. Mrs. Jean Wright was the epitome of warmth, concern for others, and courage as she proved both in her professional and personal lives. II. Body A. Jean Wright taught her students by her example of warmth. 1. Each student was special to her. a. She did not discriminate between students due to race, ethnicity, rich or poor, religion, or any other type of difference. 2. TRANSITION TO NEXT POINT B.Jean Wright taught her students by her example of concern for others. 1. When one student’s father became ill, she organized a donation drive to help the family deal with the medical expenses. 2. USE INTERNAL SUMMARY TO TRANSITIN TO NEXT POINT C.Jean Wright taught her students by her example of courage. 1. Even when her own cancer became known, she refused to allow the illness to keep her from teaching. 2. When others might have given up, Mrs. Wright kept fighting the disease even until the end. III.Conclusion I'm sure that we have all had teachers who were special to us in some way, and I hope you can see how Mrs. Wright's warmth, concern and courage made her special to all her students. The impact that this lady had upon those who knew her was undeniably proven when the announcement of her death as a result of the cancer which she had fought for so long caused a football stadium full of screaming fans to fall silent and to reflect upon the great loss the school, the community, and the world had suffered. My wish is that all present might become a source of encouragement to those around you as Mrs. Wright was to those of us who had the privilege of being her student, both of the English language and of life itself.
