Senior Earns Trip To Nationals for Sons of the American Revolution Oratorical Contest
On May 4, Gabe Gainar ’19 was unanimously chosen by a three-judge panel as the Ohio winner of the Sons of the American Revolution Oratorical Contest. He and one of his parents will now be flown to Orange County, California to compete in the national tournament against the winners from the other 49 states!
Prior to the state competition, Gabe won the North Coast district competition earlier this spring. Getting to nationals has been a goal of Gabe’s for the past three years as he got closer and closer each year. His speech examined the qualities an American citizen should possess as set forth by the founding fathers.
Gabe hopes to join the ranks of other Lancers who competed in this contest at the national level - Brittany Jannis ’03 (finished third), Yvonne Chasser ’05 (finished second) and, most recently, Sophia Zupanc ’15 (national champion).
