JCI Penticton wins top award at National Convention
JCI Penticton member Carol Sheridan travelled to Ajax Ontario (near Toronto) last month to compete in the national round of JCI’s Effective Speaking competition at the National Convention held Sept 17-21.
In May of this year, Sheridan won the regional competition held in Penticton and went on to represent the BC/Yukon tremendously in Ajax by delivering a prepared speech with the topic “The Time is Now”. In the end, she received the highest scores from the judges and was named JCI Canada’s 2014 National Effective Speaking Champion.
“It was such an honour to represent the BC/Yukon region and my Penticton chapter at the national level, says Sheridan. To compete at National Convention was my goal, so I’m absolutely thrilled with the result.”
