Keep up with Cupertino Rotary
Don Sun presented the speakers from local high schools to compete for the opportunity to participate in our district speech contest.
From Monte Vista High School, Amita Mahatri gave an excellent speech pointing out how we often identify ourselves by our numbers (SAT Scores, # likes on FB, etc) and how the 4 way test suggests we should measure ourselves in a more meaningful way. She put it all in perspective by discussing teen suicides and wrapped up by reminding us to measure ourselves by what we do and contribute, not the numbers we achieve.
We then heard from Melinda Sun of Cupertino High School. Melinda spoke about the importance of the Affordable Care Act as relates to health and how Rotary’s work to eradicate polio has had a major impact. She used the amazing story of Tenley Albright (polio survivor who won an Olympic skating medal, became a world-famous surgeon).
After listening to the speeches, the judges, Joe Hamilton, Steve Ting and Irmgard Lafrentz, deliberated and awarded first prize to Melinda Sun. Congratulations to Melinda and we will all be cheering for you at the upcoming District contest.
