Congratulations to this year’s Newport Rotary Four Way Speech Contest winner, Olivia Rasmussen and three runners up, Kaitlin Carroll, Victoria Burroughs and Alex Whipple. As always all four students gave excellent talks on topics which had to include the Rotary Four Way Test of 1) Is it the truth, 2) Is it fair to all concerned, 3) Will it build good will and better friendships and 4) Will it be beneficial to all concerned.
Unfortunately because of a prior commitment Olivia was unable to attend the semi finals in Henniker on May 6. Fortunately, Kaitlin went in her place ably represented our club. Although she did not finish in the top four of the 14 speakers that day she still made us proud to have sponsored her. I think she will be back next year and be even better.
Thank you to all the students who took the time and made the effort to participate in this year’s Newport Rotary Four Way Speech Contest.
