LHWHS senior Anna Reis has earned her Degree of Premier Distinction from the National Speech and Debate Association Honor Society.
Less than one percent of all high school speech and debate competitors reach the milestone, the highest a student can earn from the organization.
The NSDA Honor Society awards points to middle and high school students for participation in speech and debate activities, along with community service, public speaking and leadership activities.
Students earn Premier Distinction once they accrue 1,500 points; Anna currently ranks 230th in the country in total points earned.
Some of her achievements include placing second in the country in Extemporaneous Debate at the 2020 National Speech and Debate Tournament in June, placing in the top 25 in Lincoln-Douglas Debate in the same tournament the previous year.
Anna serves as the coordinator for Lincoln-Douglas Debate and is the vice president of the LHWHS Speech and Debate Team.
