Two students will represent TCU in this year’s Battle of Flowers Oratorical Contest — Vivian Noyd, a senior strategic communication major, and Cage Sawyers, a senior interdisciplinary inquiry major. Billed as the oldest university and college-level competition in Texas, the contest will take place over Zoom on February 26. The theme is “EXTRA! EXTRA! Texas Journalists Making History,” and the topic of Sawyers’ speech is the life and career of legendary newsman, Bob Schieffer. Because Schieffer’s birthday is February 25, the timing is perfect to share a copy of Sawyers’ speech, which you can read here.
