Greenville – The Greenville Rotary Club conducted their Four-Way Speech Competition on February 28th at the BRC’s Chestnut Village Community Center, and is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Horner from Greenville High School was selected as the winner. Elizabeth will represent the Greenville Rotary Club at the Rotary District competition on April 15th at Wittenberg University in Springfield. The runner-up was Andrew Cech and in 3rd place was Abby Kindley, also students at Greenville High School.

The Four-Way Speech Competition provides an opportunity for area high school students to present a four to six minute speech by applying the Four-Way Test to the concepts of leadership, service to others and life experience. The speech is presented from memory without the aid of podium, notes, displays or props and is the work of the student with no more than 75 words being quoted from others. The components of the Rotary Four-Way Test are: Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? These are the principles that Rotary members adhere to and promote within the community and in their business and personal lives.

Elizabeth, Andrew & Abby were awarded prize money from the Greenville Rotary Club and Elizabeth will have the opportunity to compete for cash prizes at the District competition. The Greenville Rotary Club was chartered on April 1, 1921 and has provided more than 90 years of service to Greenville and Darke County.
