August 21, 2019 Meeting
At our meeting on August 21, 2019, we had number of Centennial High School Interact Club members who all introduced themselves at the beginning of the meeting.
 
Li Gibbs introduced our foreign exchange student, Claudia, who is from Spain. Li also introduced our local student, Jed, who is going to Korea as our local exchange student. Jed has been studying Korean for his big trip. Both Claudia and Jed were presented with our club's Rotary flag. Claudia then spoke about where in Spain she comes from, her family and what she likes to do in her free time.
 
Li Gibbs then introduced our speakers, Aleyna Young, Mock Trial participant from Centennial High School, and Brett Dodson, the Centennial teacher who is the Mock Trial coach for that high school. Ms. Young is certainly a very impressive young lady and Mr. Dodson could not make that any clearer. This past summer, she finished second place at the Gladiator Mock Trial Championships. When she "lost" (if you can call finishing second in a nationwide competition a loss), she stood up and clapped for the winner because, according to her, she was truly happy for the winner. Centennial High School has had a competitor in the Gladiator competition each year of its existence. It is one of only two schools that have ever done that. Undoubtedly, it is due to amazing talents like Ms. Young and Mr. Dodson's teaching and leadership. Keep up the great work Mr. Dodson and good luck with your future endeavors Ms. Young.
