Congratulations to the Cornhusker Speech team for their 8th place finish in the nation at the American Forensics Association National Individual Events Tournament. UNL has the significant accomplishments of placing in the top 10 for the 10th straight year and in the top 20 for 22nd straight year. Four Nebraska teams (UNL, UNO, Doane, and Hastings) were in the top 20, showing the important shared commitment to speech and debate in our state’s colleges and high schools.
The Department of Communication Studies is so proud of the student competitors who have been going to tournaments since September and preparing even longer. Congratulations to Director Dr. Aaron Duncan, Assistant Director Dr. Allison Bonander, and our wonderful coaches, Dr. Jon Carter and Dr. Amy Martinelli. Congratulations to Dr. Allison Bonander who won a select New Coach Award from the American Forensics Association.
