On Thursday, November 7, Saint Joseph’s College will host a speech competition in the Courtney Auditorium in the Rev. Charles Banet, C.PP.S. Core Education Center. The competition begins at 7:00 pm CST. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
Headed by SJC Assistant Professor of Communication Rochelle Robertson, the competition features speakers competing for a $50 cash prize. Students and faculty members will judge the speeches, which must focus on ways to improve the SJC campus.
Robertson is excited to hold the competition for the second year in a row. As a student at SJC, Robertson competed in a speech competition organized by Assistant Professor of Communication and Dean of Freshmen Heidi Rahe. Robertson’s speech, “Is America in Decline?,” took first place. Her experience as a student led her to want to offer the same opportunity to current students, especially with the recent approval of the Communication major.
For more information on the speech competition, contact Professor Robertson at 219.866.6376 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
