Local students from The King’s Academy recently gained the opportunity to demonstrate their public speaking skills. On March 14, 2013, top fifth through eighth grade students took part in a speech contest sponsored by Modern Woodmen of America, a fraternal financial services organization. Students shared their presentations on this year’s topic, “A Person Who Has Overcome”.
Winners were Abbey Dovey-first place, Nickolas Tilley-second place, and Niamh Schumacher-third place. Each of them received a trophy and a gold award pin. Gold award pins were also awarded to the next ten ranking finalists: Nathanial Hall, Zac Shaffer, Ben Knight, Holly Batts, Adam Banks, Keelie Whitaker, Jordan Razzak, Kate Justice, Isabella Gaskins, and Callie Parton. Congratulations to all of the outstanding speakers for their exceptional work!
