DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — An educational organization put on a presentation in front of the Dothan Rotary Club Tuesday.
The organization is called PACE, which stands for proclaiming America’s call for equality.
The organization holds a speech competition for Wiregrass high school students and the three scholarship winners were present in front of rotarians and business leaders.
Anna Fischer, representing Headland, gave the Lincoln Equality Speech. Jamal Maloney from Rehobeth presented a personal speech about loving others despite differences, and Madison Ward from Slocomb talked about loving your neighbor.
Executive Director Maranda Weathers said they use the Freedom Speaks event to promote the call for equality.
“It’s so important for pace to be involved in any type of community organization, such as the Dothan Rotary Luncheon because it really allows the organization to expand its footprint in the community,” Weathers said.
Weathers said she hopes the event will get big enough to become a regional event for high school students.
