Speech of a Lifetime


During our 2014 District 24 conference on April 26th, after months of hard work, Gene Deyoe received the blessing of winning the International speech contest with his presentation of "So What." Gene will be moving on to our international semi-finals during August of 2014, which will be held in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia.

While this is very exciting, the privilege comes along with obligations as well, including financial ones. Here is where you come in.

Every donation helps!
If you know Gene and want to see him realize a personal dream, consider a donation.  
If you have ever said "So what?", consider a donation.  
If you've ever had a redefining moment, consider a donation.  
If you have had the chance to have one of your dreams come true, consider a donation.  
If you know how exciting it is to travel overseas, consider a donation.  
If you know how expensive oversea travel is, consider a donation.

A heartfelt "Thank You" to each of you for your support!

If you are interested in having Gene come practice his contest speech in front of your group, please contact Angela. Or, if you are interested in a presentation on Gene's "Speech of a Lifetime" experience after his return, contact me!  The link to email me is on the right side of your page.
