Miss Sami Warren, daughter of Barry and Diana Warren of Haleyville, is the winner of the American Legion oratorical contest which took place Saturday, February 13. Sami gave a 10 minute speech on the Constitution as it applies to duties and responsibilities of the citizens. A flawless performance with no notes, no podium, and no sound system. The second portion of the competition was a 5 min topic chosen by the post on the articles of amendment of the Constitution. Sami once again gave a 5 minute speech with no preparation beforehand. Sami continued to represent Haleyville this past Saturday in Cullman at the division level where she placed first again. Sami will continue on to the state level for competition in Montgomery in March. The Haleyville American Legion Post 33 congratulates Sami on her endeavors as she plans to enter the University of Alabama this fall.
