Katherine Walsh is a sophomore at Madison West High School, and a proud member of the school’s Forensics (speech and debate) team.

One that is immune to city borders and has helped heal relationships and restore the beauty in the neighboring city of Benton Harbor. PechaKucha St Joseph was started just one year ago in early 2015. Now all people, everyday people, have a chance to share ideas and fun doing it! The city hopes to fuel a positive and creative culture through its PechaKucha platform.
