The Marian High School speech team has earned the 2013-14 Leading Chapter Award as the top squad among the 12 Nebraska teams in the National Speech & Debate Association. More than 70 students from the Omaha school participated last season. The association’s award is given to one school in each of the 110 districts nationwide with the most total points earned during competitive speaking events and service-related activities.

"It is great to see our students recognized for their hard work," he said.
