Florence UMMen help judge Alpha Phi Alpha
oratorical contest

FLORENCE—Delta Kappa Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity held its oratorical contest, a component of its annual Beautillion Program. 

Area United Methodist Men played key roles in recognizing the oratorical skills of young men from the Florence area.

The oratorical contest allows young men, who are all high school seniors this year, to compete in the competition. The topic was “Second Amendment Rights Versus Gun Control.” The young men researched the topic and composed speeches of four to five minutes, which they delivered in front of an audience. The speeches were judged on criteria ranging from quality of content to eye contact. 

This year’s winner was Zacuan McNeil, a student at Wilson High School in Florence.

Chapter Treasurer, Beautillion organizer and longtime member of the fraternity Dr. Joseph Heyward and Lonnie Davis, member of the fraternity, are members of Cumberland United Methodist Church, Florence. Dr. Gregory Mingo, member of the fraternity and committee chairman for the oratorical contest, is a member of St. James UMC, Darlington. The lead judge of the contest, the Rev. Will Malambri, is the senior pastor of Central UMC, Florence. This year’s master of ceremonies, the Rev. J. Derrick Cattenhead, also a member of the fraternity, is the associate pastor of Central. 

The chapter president is Craig Washington.
