Metro’s Trenton Marsh was declared winner of the 8th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Oratorical Contest. Every year, the University comes together for an entire week to honor Dr. King’s legacy; the Steinhardt GSO seeks to participate in this week-long tribute by celebrating and showcasing the diverse talents of our Steinhardt graduate students. Most importantly, each contestant honors Dr. King’s legacy by centralizing his message within their unique creative pieces. Historically, Dr. King’s impact has inspired brilliant student speeches, artistic expressions, and powerful performance pieces at our Oratorical Contests. Marsh’s speech, "The Courage to Dream," in response to this year's theme of "The Power of Courage: Passion, Purpose, Perseverance" was hailed as the best among the entering contestants.
