Marsalis Repeats at MLK Oratory Competition!

Congratulations to fourth grade student, Aiden Body, the 2024 Dallas ISD and Foley-Lardner Law Firm's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Oratory Competition Winner! He dazzled both the audience and judges and took home the top prize along with a $2000 savings bond, an Apple IPad, home library book, a plaque and swag from SMU (this year's host site). He was featured on the Dallas Morning News and will deliver his speech live at Fox4 News, WFAA 8, Channel 11 News and the Dallas Bar Association MLK luncheon this month as a part of the national observance of Dr. King's birthday. He has already been asked to represent our campus at this year's Dallas ISD State of the District event. This is a second consecutive win for our campus and we are Mustang PROUD!
