Maiolo, Benz Take Top Prizes at Annual Toastmasters Contests

Congratulations to David Maiolo, Communications and Network Services, and Ilene Benz, VaPA, who each won first place trophies in the MCC Toastmasters 5th annual Humorous Speech and Table Topics contests respectively on September 23. Both earned the opportunity to represent the MCC Toastmasters Club at the upcoming area contest on October 3.

In his speech “She Said Yes,” David told the humorous story about how things didn’t exactly go as planned on the day he proposed to his wife. Ilene spoke eloquently and extemporaneously during the Table Topics contest about a time when she had to make an ethical decision.

Rosanna Condello, College and Community Relations, and Tish Williams, Grants, placed second in the Humorous Speech and Table Topics contests respectively.

Interested in what the MCC Toastmasters Club offers you? The college community is welcome to visit and observe our next meeting on October 14 at 4:45 pm in the Warshof Conference Center, Flynn Campus Center, Empire Room (3-209). Please contact Mary Louis Musler, vice president membership, at x1541 for more information.
