Hockaday Debate team has earned the Leading Chapter Award in the North Texas Longhorns District. This award is based on student participation throughout the year and is the highest honor a school can receive from the National Speech and Debate Association.
Only the top school in accumulated members and degrees per district earns this designation each year, and each school must wait five years before being eligible again. Out of more than 3,000 member schools nationwide, Hockaday is one of only 108 to receive this award. The award reflects 777 members and degrees over 12 years.
