Please congratulate Khalil Russell (pictured with his parents in the attachment), who took first place at the American Legion Oratorical Contest this past Saturday. With wins at both the Local and District levels, Khalil moves on to the Regional Competition on February 20th at the American Legion Post in Phoebus.
Khalil's original oration on the US Constitution was well crafted and expertly delivered. Crabber alum in the audience hooted out "Crabber Pride!" after his win was announced. With the support of American Legion Post 31 (across from Darling Stadium), we hope to see Khalil take first again next month and move on to the state competition.
