District Training Assembly Delegates Were Wowed
By PDG Ron Petersen, Sr.
The “final four” in the 4-Way Test Speech Contest presented their speeches live in front of a noon luncheon crowd who gave them standing ovations. Each emulated the virtues of Rotary’s Four-Way Test on April 27th, 2019 at the District Training Assembly in Tulsa, OK.
The Four Way Test Speech Contest teaches youth the principles of the Four Way Test and assists them in furthering their education and future with monetary awards. It remains one of the most popular programs held at the club and district level.
Many Rotary Delegates were saying WOW at this year’s ‘final-four” ... the audience realized quickly the four were well matched as they entertained and inspired Rotarians at the District Training Assembly on April 27th in Tulsa, OK.
Meagan Petersen sponsored by the Rotary Club of Joplin, MO and a Senior at Joplin High School, took home top honors and a $1,000 first place prize. Meagan is leaning towards studying Law.
IN NO CERTAIN ORDER.. THE THREE RUNNERS-UP WERE:
Brooke Duncan, a Junior at Mt. Vernon High School, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Mt. Vernon, MO.
Addie Jones, a Freshamn at Harrison High School, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Harrison, AR.
Abigail Bellatti, a Senior at Regent Prep High School, sponsored by the Tulsa Sunrise Rotary Club of Tulsa, OK.
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 club level and state level.
Congratulations to them and to the sponsoring clubs. Hope to see more clubs participating next year.
