Student Speaker Contest
Our contestant in the Student Speaker Contest, Michael Gray from Archbishop Riordan High School, has won the District contest and will be advancing to the Area 2 contest. The contest will take place on Saturday, May 11th at 2 p.m. at Tierra Linda Middle School in San Carlos. It would be great if some members can show up and show our support. The Club records have been checked, and it is unclear if we’ve ever had a contestant go this far in the contest.
