The National Speech and Debate Association has awarded Green River High School with the 2014-2015 Leading Chapter Award. This coveted honor, based on student participation, is the highest recognition the Association can bestow upon a chapter. Only one school in each district attains this designation each year, and it must wait at least five years before being eligible again. Out of more than 3,000 member schools nationwide, Green River is one of only 110 to receive the Leading Chapter Award.
The Green River High School award reflects 769 members and degrees over six years. In that time, several hundred students have been taught communication, analysis, leadership, and social skills.
"The Leading Chapter Award serves as an indication of Green River High School's relentless dedication to their students and to speech and debate education. Your efforts truly embody our mission of giving youth a voice. Congratulations on this remarkable achievement!"... J. Scott Wunn, Executive Director of the National Speech and Debate Association
