Elevator Speech Contest
An elevator speech is a memorized statement that summarizes, in a meaningful way, the essence of our brand and institution. During the month of March, the Eastern University Marketing Office held a contest to create a new and improved elevator speech, and the judges have voted! The winner is Phillip Cary. Other top speeches were written by Tony Blair, Linda Hytha, Mary Cederberg, Bettie Ann Brigham, Linda Olson and John Levis.
WINNER- Phillip Cary:
Eastern is a Christian university that integrates not only faith and reason, but justice as well. It teaches students what it means to believe in Christ, it teaches them how to think rigorously in their academic disciplines, and it gets them involved in moral and spiritual formation, so that their hearts can be formed in the image of Christ, his wisdom and justice.
