Chagrin Falls High School Senior Hattie Sherman has been named Academic All American by the National Speech & Debate Association. Sherman is a four-year team member. She is the current squad leader of the interpretation squad. She competes in Humorous Interpretation and recently bid in to the State Tournament to be held at Wooster High School, March 3-5.
The Academic All American award recognizes students who have earned the degree of Superior Distinction (750 points); completed at least five semesters of high school; demonstrated outstanding character and leadership; and earned a GPA of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent).
“Hattie is not only an accomplished speaker but also a leader on the team,” said Speech and Debate Head Coach Ken Kasee. “She has spent much of her practice time this year in service to her teammates, bringing food to practice and even driving them home. She is thoughtful and compassionate in everything she does.”
