May 14, 2010 – Closing Out the School Year

Lately there’s been many lasts. The last band concert, the last this, the last that. One of those lasts is the last debate (forensics) banquet. No doubt because of plenty of practice from her sharp-witted parents, debate was one of her favorite activities – highlights included being the first student in 10 years to make debate nationals from her high school, and a finalist as “senior of the year” in the state of Iowa.

At the banquet, she got to grab all her trophies that had been accumulating in the school trophy case. Of course many thanks go out to her coaches, who endured many hours on the road and in hotels for out-of-town tournaments!
