 Knightstown’s Matthew Bourdeau Among Finalists in Henry County GOP Annual Speech Contest

March 12, 2008 - Five area high school students addressed the topic of immigration reform last Thursday in the Henry County Republican Club's 11th annual speech contest.

Chris Wilkey, a junior at Tri Jr.-Sr. High School, took home top honors and a $100 prize. He is the son of Jason and Trina Wilkey of Lewisville.

Second place ($75) went to Lauren Shirey, a home-schooled junior and daughter of Ed and Marla Shirey of Stoney Creek Township. Matthew Bourdeau, a senior at the Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics and Humanities at Ball State University and the son of Michael and Lori Bourdeau of Knightstown, finished third ($50) in the competition.

Two other area students, Benjamin Evans, a Blue River Valley High School sophomore and son of Walter and Loretta Evans of rural Mooreland, and home-schooled senior Daniel Fowl, son of Greg and Kathleen Fowl of rural Henry Township, also took part in the contest. All participants received a free one-year associate (non-voting) membership in the Henry County Republican Club (a $10 value).

Last week's contest was judged by registered nurse Ilze Koch, a Latvian immigrant from rural Portland, and Ted Ogle and Susie Lightle, chairman and vice-chair, respectively, of the Sixth Congressional District Republican Central Committee. Henry County Commissioner and Bill Cronk and County Councilman Mike Thalls served as timekeepers, while County Councilman Nate LaMar served as the contest's chairman.
