Congratulations Lanier Middle School!

Congratulations to the Speech and Debate Team from Lanier Middle School! They have done it again, winning the national debate championship for the ninth year in a row! We are all so proud of Coach Franz Hill and his team at Lanier. They were recognized as the Overall School of Excellence and the Debate School of Excellence in the National Junior Forensics League Tournament in Dallas earlier this month. Lanier students also earned first place honors in the Impromptu Speaking, Extemporaneous Speaking, and Public Forum Debate competitions.

Earlier today, we had a crew from HISD TV out shooting interviews with the winning team. Their story will be featured on next week’s edition of HISD News. I want to congratulate Coach Hill, Principal Linda Smith, all the students, their parents, and everyone at Lanier Middle School. Way to go, Purple Pups!
