Mann gets third diamond

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The National Forensic League has announced its newest diamond coaches on Nov. 1, 2012.

Marilyn Mann, speech and theater teacher at Monett High School, received her third diamond.

A Diamond Award recognizes a professional career that combines excellence and longevity. The League provides diamond awards based on coach points received. A coach may receive one-tenth the points of every student coached and one-tenth of the points earned as a student member of the League.

After attaining a total of 1,500 points, a member coach is entitled to wear a diamond-set key or pin. Additional diamonds accrue at 3,000 points, 6,000 points, 10,000 points and each 3,000-point thereafter. The minimum time between earning each diamond is five years as a coach of the National Forensic League.

On June 20, 2013, the coaches will receive special recognition at the Lincoln Financial Group/National League National Speech and Debate Tournament in Birmingham, Ala.
