In 1963, the Henry Greve Speech Contest was established in memory of Henry Greve, a Kern County speech therapist who was killed in an auto accident. A member of Bakersfield Toastmasters Club #270, Henry Greve is remembered for organizing the Junior Toastmasters Clubs in Kern County. The Junior Toastmasters gained worldwide recognition when Reader’s Digest publicized their work.
Congratulations to the following winners who competed at the District’s 2018 Henry Greve Speech Contest:
These four students will represent the District at the county-level competition on Thursday, March 15, 2018, at 7 p.m., at the City Centre Building, Room 1B, located at 1300 17th Street. Thank you to the teachers at the school sites who worked hard to prepare the students for this year’s contest.
