Senior Earns Debate Society's Highest Rank

Senior Lyall Stuart has earned the degree of Premier Distinction from the National Forensic League, a speech and debate honor society for high school and middle school. Under the guidance of Greenhill coaches Aaron Timmons and Eric Forslund, Lyall has achieved sweeping success in debate throughout this year, including winning the Harvard Round Robin, the Montgomery Bell Tournament in Nashville, TN, the Glenbrooks Invitational in Chicago, IL and gold medal honors at Blake's School John Edie Holiday Debate Invitational in Minneapolis, MN.
 
Premier Distinction is the NFL's highest rank in student membership and reflects sustained excellence in classroom activities, competition rounds, and service projects. Students may earn points in six separate categories: speech, debate, congress, service, district, and national.
 
A total of only 96 students nationwide have earned the degree of Premier Distinction within the last month, placing them among the top half of one percent of NFL members.
