National Association Recognizes Speech, Debate Coaches

Colleen Starkey, Editor-in-Chief

The National Speech and Debate Association is recognizing speech and debate coaches J.P. Fugler and Rory McKenzie for National Volunteer Week this week. They both serve in volunteer rolls in promoting speech and debate and being a part of the UIL District Committee for our area.

“We are proud to celebrate the commitment that [McKenzie and Fugler] have made to help students in your area access speech and debate,” J. Scott Wunn, Speech and Debate Executive Director, said in an email. “Without Rory and J.P., our community would not be what it is today. Moreover, the future of our activity would not be as bright.”
