MONMOUTH — The Monmouth Lions Club Speak-Out 2018 was held March 12 at the United Church of Monmouth Packard Activity Center.

The winners, all Monmouth Academy students, were:

First place: Kaitlin Hunt, speaking on the “Impact of Rosa Parks.” Hunt received $100 and a trophy.

Second place: Natalie Grandahl, speaking on the “Definition of Beauty.” Grandahl received $75 and a trophy.

Third place: Bryce Boulet, speaking on “Quebec Independence.” Boulet received $50 and a trophy.

Judges were Lions Douglas Grant, Robert Cyr Jr. and Debbie Sanborn. After each speech, contestants were asked questions by Lion Chris Bryant and Lion Christina Ramdell. Speeches were evaluated in three categories: delivery of speech, material and response to the questions.

Monmouth Academy coaches Scott and Cathy Foyt were each presented a Lions Club International pen in recognition of their work and dedication to Monmouth Academy and students.

Chairman Guy Piper commended the students on a “job well done.”
