Two winners, one boy and one girl, were chosen to receive full scholarships to Faulkner: Levi Cullum, a member of the Concord Road Church of Christ in Brentwood, Tenn., won for his speech on rebuilding American evangelism. Anna Grace King, a member of the Huntingdon Church of Christ in Tennessee, won for her speech on being strong in faith.

The speakers also got to meet renowned civil rights lawyer and Church of Christ elder Fred Gray, who spoke on “Love One Another” at the lectureship.
