For the second year in a row, Alice High School student Rose Torres won the Alice Rotary Club's Four-Way Speech.

On Wednesday, Torres and two of her fellow classmates, Albert Taboada and Megan Rios competed for the chance to win a $500 college scholarship.

Each student gave their speech that implemented the four rotary questions: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Torres, a senior at Alice HS, speech focused on the power of writing to help people.

She will attend University of Texas in Austin after high school graduation.

Second place and a $300 scholarship went to Taboada, senior at Alice HS, for his speech on the compass of life. Third place and a $200 scholarship went to Rios, a junior at Alice HS, for her speech on the truthfulness of the band program. 

Torres will have a chance for additional scholarships when she represents Alice at the Area Rotary District Speech Contest on March 24 in San Diego.
