STUDENT SPEAKERS CONTEST “How Can Kindness Reunite Our Country”
Thanks to Sec Paul Walters for chairing the contest, the evening was delightful as we had 2 speakers from our GHHS LEO Club. Both of our speakers are 17 years old and seniors,
|Raneen Yalda and Masar Shakir|
and the results were VERY close this year having to go to the final ‘test’ for a winner with Masar prevailing.
Sec Paul thanked all members who assisted to make the contest a success including PDG Mercy, Prez Mike, PP Yvonne, 1st Veep Rob, PP Gary Robinson, PP Bob Moreau, 2nd Veep Carl and Jim Sing.
We were fortunate to have 4 great judges including Zahara Almosawi (former LEO Club member and potential member),
|Christine Sphar, Andrew Hayes, Zahar Almosawi and Briana Clifton|
