Two seniors from Park Hill High School and Park Hill South High School earned first and second place in the KCI Rotary Club’s Four-Way Test Scholarship Speech Contest.
Jacob McFee from PHHS placed first, earning a $1,000 scholarship, and Emma Patterson from Park Hill South placed second, earning a $500 scholarship.
Both wrote a four- to five-minute essay on the contest’s theme, “What the Rotary 4-Way Test Means to Me.”
The test asks:
- Is it the truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
- Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
The program encourages students to learn more about the test’s ethical and moral lessons.
