Coach Jimmy Smith of Princeton., Texas, congratulates Hannah Howard for being an National Forensics League qualifier for Nationals in Kansas City
National Junior Forensic League competitors (Evan Paul, Alexandra Deaver, Michelle Ramadan, Reece Thompson and Hal Koelsch) competed at Holy Trinity School in May.
National Qualifying debaters for 2010 were Dylan Losey, Moshe Dolejsi, and Hannah Howard. To qualify, debaters had to defeat competitors from 37 schools in the district to earn the right to attend Kansas City Nationals.
Dylan Losey, a Vanguard senior, received the National Forensics League Academic All-American award on November 11. He is one of only 100 students nationwide to receive the award.
To be eligible, a student must be an NFL member with an earned degree of Superior Distinction – 750 points on record in the National Office. Recipients must have a 3.7 minimum GPA out of 4.0 (or its equivalent), an ACT score of 27 or higher and/or SAT score of 1400 or higher (SAT tests taken after 3/1/05 – 2000 or higher). In addition, the student should demonstrate qualities of character, leadership and commitment, as verified by both his debate coach and the principal of his school.
