This is the season for graduation speeches. Here is one, of sorts, from a Next to Normal Story Slam at the McLean County Arts Center. Story Slam stories are true experiences and from the heart.
Tristan Bixby is a senior at Normal Community High School, graduating soon. Here, she tells us what life has taught her about making plans.
Bixby will be a theater major at Illinois State University in the fall. Tristan comes from a family of six children and all their names start with T. Her favorite color is purple.
She told her story at a Next to Normal Story Slam produced by Devon Lovell at the McLean County Arts Center and recorded by GLT Correspondent Breanna Grow. The theme of the next Story Slam at 7 p.m. May 17 is "Isn't It Romantic."
