On April 17, Georgia Highlands College conducted its 4th annual public speaking competition with 41 students from all five campus locations — Floyd, Cartersville, Paulding, Douglasville, and Marietta — competed with original persuasive public speeches in a multi-round competition. Students won more than $600 in various prizes with Malika Jones, a GHC Paulding campus student, taking home the top prize with a speech on the 2014 Multiple Sclerosis Walk.

Finalists from the competition included Emily Larish of Marietta.

The event was sponsored by The Rome Area Council for the Arts, GHC Student Life, GHC Office of Academic Affairs, and the GHC Bookstore.
