WE HAVE A NATIONAL CHAMPION!

Anderson Speech & Debate 2021 graduate Giana Martinez put on a performance for the ages and won the NSDA National Championship in Dramatic Interpretation!!!  It’s Anderson’s first-ever national championship in a main event.   Our incredible graduated senior Giana Martinez (Gonzaga c/o ‘25) is already one of the most decorated speech competitors in school history, and is ending her career in style! She has outlasted hundreds of other students over the course of FOURTEEN rounds of Dramatic Interpretation competition since Tuesday, and was one of six students in the country to earn a spot in National Finals!!!!!

 

Congratulations to Giana, her family, our Speech coach Michael Jennings for his tireless dedication, coaching, and support of our whole team, and all of our team members for establishing a culture of love, respect, and mutual support that enables teammates to reach the greatest heights.
