Winners of the Falls Church Rotary Club’s Middle School Four Way Test Essay Competition were announced at last week’s meeting on Thursday, April 5. The contest winner was Daniel Lian with Victoria Chen taking second place and Faraz Ali Mirza earning third place winner. The top three finishers were joined by their parents as well as Falls Church Rotary Club President-Elect Stephanie Arnold and Longfellow Middle School English teacher’s Leslie Nightingale and Bruce Wilson.
The Four-Way Test that Rotarians try to live by is, “Of all the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?”
Lian’s winning essay was forwarded to the Rotary District Contest. The Rotary Club of Falls Church is celebrating 66 years of community “Service Above Self” in 2018 and meets the first and third Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. at the Harvest Moon Restaurant (7260 Arlington Blvd., Falls Church).
