John A. Tamming Etymology Award for 2015

John Tamming would like to congratulate the recipients of the John A. Tamming Etymology award for 2015.

Below is the award letter.

RE: WEST HILL SECONDARY SCHOOL AND O.S.C.V.I. AND SAUGEEN SECONDARY SCHOOL AND ST. MARY’S SECONDARY SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP 2015

Congratulations on your achievement.

As you know, the Tamming Law Scholarship is awarded to the student who best possesses an aptitude for oral and/or written advocacy and argument (etymology) and also presents an avid interest in local and world history.

Etymology is defined as ‘pleading or arguing for a cause’ and is the backbone of the legal profession.

Oratory skills and the art of speaking in public are critical to any professional in their career. Winston Churchill, one of the finest orators ever, once said “All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word; freedom, justice, honour, duty, mercy, hope.”

It is my hope that these skills will lead you to success in your chosen field of study and your future endeavors. We wish you all the best.

Sincerely,

John A. Tamming
