Christian won first place at the competition, earning a standing ovation after his speech and again at the award presentation. His topic was student-on-student sexual assault, which he spoke about with passion and eloquence. Christian was ecstatic to have won the competition and bring home a medal for his school.
Christian's success is a testament to his hard work and dedication, as well as the support he received from his staff liaison/coach, Ms. Jerome, who never missed one of his competitions. Congratulations to Christian and St. Mary's High School on this outstanding achievement!
