Jordan Hughey Wins Eaton Speech Contest

Jordan Hughey won the second annual Joseph H. Eaton Speech Contest on May 1, with his homage to Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal.” Hughey’s speech was entitled “A Modest Proposal for making money while not mincing our motherland’s minors, saving our sights from stupendous sums of sizable citizens, and for delivering this destitute democracy from its deplorable debt.” A total of eight competitors were invited to compete in the yearly contest.

Jonathan Wilson finished second with his address entitled “The Gangs of Memphis.” Kevin Moss was third with “The Parable of the Cube.”

The contest was judged by a cross section of professors, as well as last years winner and a member of the local Toastmasters Club.
