Congratulations to our Lions Club Student Speaker Participants!

Congratulations to our Civitas students Veronica and Darlene! They recently participated in the 2014 Lions Club Student Speakers Contest. This year’s speech topic was “Community Service: What does it mean and why does it matter?”

Veronica and Darlene presented their speeches in the first round in Burbank, and both won college scholarships! Veronica was invited back to speak at the second round, in a restaurant in Chinatown, against students from three other Los Angeles high schools. We’re so proud of you both!
