Extemp Hub's instructional staff is anchored by Weston Elkins.
A Houston native, Weston has spent over fifteen years as a member of the speech and debate community. As a high school competitor from 2000 to 2004, Weston won three state championships in Extemporaneous Speaking (TFA USX 2003, 2004/UIL Informative 2004). He also earned TFA state qualifications in Policy Debate, Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Congressional Debate, Original Oratory, and Foreign Extemp. Weston attended the NSDA national tournament three times (once in Congress and twice in United States Extemp), finishing 9th in United States Extemp in 2004. He was also a competitor at the 2004 MBA Round Robin in Extemp and won 4th place at the Inaugural Tournament of Champions for Extemporaneous Speaking.
After high school, Weston obtained his B.A. in Political Science at St. Mary's University in San Antonio and his M.S. in Higher Education at University of Pennsylvania. Weston's students have advanced to finals at TFA State in both Domestic and Foreign Extemp; out-rounds on the national circuit in Extemp, Humorous, and Congress; have qualified to NSDA Nationals in US Extemp, International Extemp, Original Oratory, Congressional Debate, Informative Speaking, Humorous Interpretation, and Lincoln-Douglas Debate; and have received invitations to both the Cap City and MBA Round Robins for Extemp.
