Congratulations to Ethan Mirman, senior speech and debate team member at Minnetonka High School, on being named the 2019 Student of the Year by the Central Minnesota District of the National Speech and Debate Association!
This prestigious award is presented to a graduating senior in each district that best represents the tenets of the Association's Code of Honor: integrity, respect, humility, leadership, and service. Students of the Year must also have strong academic credentials and a commitment in participating in the speech and debate community.
Ethan has done a remarkable job in helping to grow the Minnetonka High School Debate Team. In addition to being a two-time national qualifier, Ethan has also shown his commitment to service via fundraisers to help those in need at local tournaments.
Our district, in particular, is known for being one of the most nationally competitive districts in the entire country, so this distinction is truly impressive. With his presentation of the District Student of the Year Award, Ethan is now in contention for the National Student of the Year Award, to be presented at the 2019 National Speech and Debate Association National Tournament this June in Dallas, Texas.
