“Having the opportunity Student Speakers to compete against so many quality speakers was an experience of a lifetime. The fact that my presentation was chosen over theirs was both an honor and a humbling experience. I was able to grow personally in having the confidence that I could give an inspiring speech in a public forum. At each level of the competition I was supported by Lions Club members both before and after each presentation. I appreciated the club members warmth in accepting me and I took into consideration all of their suggestions in perfecting my presentation. 4-C6 Lions Orientation
