Felicity Higgs (Club 15) was presented with the John Barton Trophy by Club President Freeman Wayne Passmore at the end of year function in December, for her win in Foothills Club 11’s South of the River Speaking Competition in June.
Felicity joined Rostrum early in 2015. She entered the competition for new Rostrum members to further develop her communication skills, particularly addressing a large audience, and admitted she’d never had had the courage to enter a speaking competition before joining Rostrum.
Currently studying for her Master by Research degree in Education, Felicity went on to compete as a finalist in ECU’s Three Minute Thesis Competition in September with her research pitch on student-teacher relationships.
Well done Felicity!
