Opportunities to attend college should never be out of reach for our children. On Saturday, I had the pleasure of judging the American Legion High School Oratorical Scholarship contest at the Post #116 in Fuquay.
I heard some amazing speeches on the Constitution which gave me hope that there’s a brighter future for our young people. The Division III winner was Patrick Spain (grey suit) from Post 1 in Raleigh. He will go on to represent 13 NC counties at the state contest March 2, in Hickory, NC. The national finals contest will be held in Indianapolis in April.
Parents prepare your children for next year’s competition. Contact the American legion Post in your area for information.
