The Winston Salem Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, sponsored an oratorical contest in collaboration with the Office of International Programs at Winston Salem State University for study abroad students to emphasize the significance of international experiences and to immerse themselves in other cultures. 

The chapter’s International Trends and Services Facet sponsored an oratorical contest for students that will be studying abroad this spring.

As part of the competition, each contestant prepared an oration entitled, “Strengthening Our International Communities Through Globalization.”  WSSU student Sahmon Goodman, a sophomore from Fayetteville, won first place and a $500 award. WSSU student Tajsah A. Armstrong, also from Fayetteville, won second place and received a $250 award. Third place winner was Courtney McMillian, a senior from Winston-Salem, who received a $250 award.

The Winston-Salem, N.C. chapter has partnered with Winston-Salem State University for over two decades to provide access to international networking, internship possibilities, scholarships, and travel opportunities for students at Winston-Salem State. Gloria Jackson serves as the chairperson of the International Trends and Services Facet and Assistant Professor Dr. James Pope is the interim director of the Office of International Programs. Jacqueline Pettiford serves as president of the Winston-Salem chapter.
