Adjutant Burdette introduced Post 304's representative to the National Oratorical Contest, Andrew Jones, a senior at Kennesaw Mountain High School. Burdette advised the group that Andrew had represented the Post well by winning the District Contest and placing second in the Area Contest, the winner of which proceeded to win the Department Contest and place in the top 10 in the National Contest. Jones indicated that has been accepted to Princeton University in the Fall. Burdette awarded him with a Certificate of Appreciation and a Post check for $150.00.

Jones then spoke to the group about how his experience in the American Legion contests had helped him in winning the State High School speaking contest shortly afterward.
