On July 13, 2013 Toastmasters International awarded Kit-Juelle Frank-Amoroso the rank of Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM), a first for Saint Lucia and her home club, the NIC Toastmasters Club. The Distinguished Toastmaster award is the highest achievement for a Toastmaster requiring a mastery of both communication and leadership skills.

In order to become a Distinguished Toastmaster, the Toastmaster must present more than 40 speeches evaluated by other members and perform several different types of leadership positions.  Kit-Juelle Frank-Amoroso’s leadership roles included: Area Governor, President and Club Sponsor.

“I am humbled by this achievement,” said Frank-Amoroso DTM. “The experience has enabled me to work together with fellow toastmasters from around the world.  While we each have different personalities and speeds of learning, we are united in our quest for self-improvement.”

The new DTM received a special plaque from Toastmasters International on Friday July 18, 2013 to recognize the achievement. Kit-Juelle Frank-Amoroso joined Toastmasters in 2007 while in The Bahamas. Her home club is the NIC Toastmasters Club in Castries which is sponsored by the National Insurance Corporation.  The club,
which was chartered in 1999, meets every Wednesday from 5:30-7 p.m. in the NIC Boardroom, Francis Compton Building, Waterfront, Castries.  Guests are always welcomed to visit or call 452-2808 for more information.

Started in 1924, Toastmasters International has grown to become the world’s leading organization teaching public speaking and leadership skills and helping people conquer their fear of public speaking. More than four million men and women have enjoyed the benefits of Toastmasters membership. The nonprofit organization now has approximately 280,000 members in 12,500 clubs in 113 countries (
