Daniel Washington from Buena Park High is one of the four Rotary District Winners.

Let us all congratulate Daniel and our member Dr. Beth Swift who encouraged him to enter the contest.

Daniel was one of nine finalists, each of whom was an area winner. The finalists all gave wonderful speeches.
The contest was judged by a panel of 6 toastmasters. After all the finalists had given their speeches each student got a chance to share their future plans. Daniel talked about becoming an officer in the US Air Force. He mentioned two scholarships he has been offered. His Mom and younger brother were at the contest. We are very proud of Daniel.

The four winners each will be honored next Tuesday night at the Cavalcade of Excellence during the District Presidents meeting May 6th, at the Doubletree Hotel in Orange.
