    March 4, 2022

     

    On March 2nd, three YCUSD students competed and won prizes at the Yuba City Rotary Club Speech Contest!  The subject of the speech was "Serving Changes Lives."  This was the first time in two years that the Rotary Club has been able to have an in-person speech contest, and our YCUSD students showed up in force!  On Thursday, March 3rd there was a wonderful article in the Appeal-Democrat written by Robert Summa about the contest and the students' speeches, I encourage you to read it if you have the chance.  Avery Key (Yuba City High School Sophomore) was awarded first prize, Ryan Van Valkenburgh (River Valley Senior) was awarded second prize, and Joey Jelavich (River Valley Senior) was awarded third prize.  Avery will be advancing to the Rotary semi-final competition in April.
