Dock students excel at 4-Way Speech competition
Five Dock students—Livia Anderson, Madelyn Bergin, Aya Berry, Danica Moyer, and Liz Wanamaker—competed recently in the Rotary Club of Harleysville's 4-Way Speech Contest. The students gave speeches on ethical issues using the principals of Rotary’s 4-Way Test, which asks the following questions of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
The winners this year were: Danica Moyer - 1st place ($150) and an opportunity to move on to the next level of competition; Liz Wanamaker - 2nd place ($100), and Aya Berry - 3rd place ($50). Congratulations to all the speech participants for doing a marvelous job!
4-Way Speech Participants included (l to r) Liz Wanamaker, Aya Berry, Danica Moyer, Livia Anderson, and Madelyn Bergin.
Hydrogen: The fuel of the future?
Miss Metzler's Environmental Science class received a visit on Wednesday from Kareem Afzal, CEO of PDC Machines, Inc. in Warminster, who shared with students about the advantages of hydrogen fuel cells and how his company is helping to bring the first generation of hydrogen vehicles to market; he drove one of them to school for students to see!
