Vincentian Academy junior qualifies for national forensic tournament
Sammy Potter, a junior at Vincentian Academy, recently
qualified for the National Catholic Forensic League National Championship in
Sacramento, California which will take place on Saturday, May 28, 2016, for her
original oratory speech about human trafficking. She was awarded a 2nd place finish
qualifying her to compete in the championship.
The following is a glimpse of the award-winning oratory on
human trafficking, part of Sammy’s original piece.
“Human trafficking is today’s version of slavery and the number of
victims is only rising. Nonetheless, this global issue can be resolved through
spreading awareness. By educating people of the dangers and manipulations associated with the industry, more people will
hopefully be able to avoid encountering it themselves. Anyone can help these
victims by supporting them mentally, economically, or emotionally. All in all,
while human trafficking is a global issue that requires a coordination response
from all nations, it is happening in our own backyard, meaning everyone has the
opportunity to be part of the solution.”
