2017 Elementary Oratorical Competition
Samuel Secunde, a fifth-grade student from Charles England was the first place winner in the
LCS Elementary Oratorical Competition held December 1 st at Charles England Elementary
School. The district competition, sponsored by the Jacket Academic Boosters Club, was
comprised of grades 3-5 top scorers from school level competitions. Each student wrote a 3-5
minute speech about the topic, “If I were mayor of Lexington - what would I do to make my
town a better place in which to live.” While judges worked to tabulate the scores, top winning
students from grades 1-2 delighted the audience by reciting short poems, one of which was an
original. Samuel was presented a $200 check from the Jacket Academic Boosters by Mr. Curlee, along with Booster Board members Donald Holt and Sylvia Walser. Libni Ivonn Martinez, a fifth-grade student from Charles England was presented $100 for winning second place. Third place was a tie between Ayanna Curry and Tyzick Carranco-Bahena. They will each receive a $50 check from the Boosters.
