Their topic: The four core values of the YMCA — Honesty, Responsibility, Respect and Caring.

Their goal? To win the “Branch Finals” title in the national public speaking contest for kids in the Before and After School Programs at the YMCA.

To that end, La Jolla Y orators wrote their speeches and gave it their best shot on May 26. Liam Keefe took the win, based on self-esteem and confidence (bet his sharp suit didn’t hurt, either!) Keefe will go on to give his speech one more time at the county-wide finals June 11 at the Y corporate offices, 3708 Ruffin Road, San Diego. The county champ wins a $250 gift card.
