Dallas Independent School District's publication, The Hub, featured the 24th Annual Gardere MLK Jr. Oratory Competition semifinals to be held at the school district’s Ada Williams Auditorium on Dec. 8. Students will present original speeches answering the question, “What would Dr. King say in his campaign speech if he were running for president this year?”

“Gardere is proud to partner with Dallas ISD to not only encourage the writing and oratory skills of elementary school students, but to also celebrate Dr. King’s message of equality with the Dallas community,” said Gardere Chair Holland N. O’Neil. “We are inspired each year by these students’ knowledge and passion for honoring his legacy.”
