Students rank in top 1/3 of 1% in nation
Alexandria Gilbert and Will Ralls from Lamp High School, AL, have earned the National Forensic League's degree of Premier Distinction, the highest student degree in the honor society. A degree of Premier Distinction 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. Only about four hundred students out of NFL's 112,000 student members receive the degree of Premier Distinction each year - about 1/3 of 1 percent.
