District Training Assembly Delegates Amazed
By PDG Ron Petersen, Sr.
Demonstrating the highest ideals and goals of Rotary, the Four Way Test Speech Contest teaches the principles of the Four Way Test, and assists youth in furthering their education and future with monetary awards. It remains one of the most popular programs held at the club level and above. Twenty-Four Rotary Clubs participated this year.
Many Rotary Delegates were swept away by this year’s ‘final-four” and left the assembly wondering why their own club did not participate.
The audience quickly realized the four were very well matched as they entertained and inspired Rotarians at the District Training Assembly on May 13th in Springdale, AR. Olivia Marie Padilla, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cassville and a Senior at Cassville High School, took home top honors and a $1,000 first place prize. Olivia has been accepted to the University of Chicago to study Politics and Public Policy.
IN NO CERTAIN ORDER.. THE THREE RUNNERS-UP WERE:
Matt Lugibihl, a Senior at Jenks High School, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Tulsa Sunrise.
Ian Cooley, a Senior at Neosho High School, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Neosho.
Kelsey Powers, a Senior at Bergman High School, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Harrison.
Each runner-up received $350. These four finalists earned the honor of competing live during the luncheon at the District Training Assembly by winning at their club level, their state level and at the District finals.
Congratulations to them all and to the sponsoring clubs. Hope to see more clubs participating next year.
