Bishop Union HS Senior wins speech competition
submitted by Pat Nahin
Olivia Grah, took first place in the Bishop Rotary club’s speech contest last February and went on to compete at the 2015 District 5190 Conference held at Harrah’s South Lake Tahoe on May 16th, 2015. Olivia was awarded $1000 for first place. At a recent noon meeting of the Rotary Club of Bishop, Olivia gave her winning speech to members. The theme: “It is better to light a single candle than to sit and curse the darkness.” It was easy to see why Olivia won first place. Her speech was compelling and dramatic. She held the audience in rapt attention to her very meaningful interpretation of Rotary’s theme for the contest. Congratulations and Best Wishes were given to Olivia for her academic accomplishments and certainly are proud of our Bishop student who will attend Princeton University next fall.
