The Communication Arts department held its Outstanding Orator contest Monday, April 18, for the best speakers in current traditional COM 1010 classes. The first place winner was Madison Hunt, who persuaded the audience on the importance of reading to children. The second place winner was Kensley Turner, and the third place winner was Charlotte Buckner. The winning student’s name is placed on a plaque that hangs in the Communication Arts hallway. The speakers also earned certificates and prizes as part of their participation. The department held its first Outstanding Orator contest in the fall of 2015 and hopes to make it a recurring semester event.
