Back To Front Page

The Chesterton High School Speech and Debate team was recently named to the Societe de 400 as one of the largest chapters in the nation.

Students earn points and degrees in the National Forensic League based upon competitive and service-related activities. The distinction places Chesterton among the top 0.5 percent of schools nationwide.

In addition to the honor, the National Forensic League named its Top 100 schools in the nation for the 2012-2013 academic year. Chesterton ranked 37th out of more than 3,000 schools nationwide.

The Speech and Debate program was founded in 1967 and is currently coached by a staff comprised of teachers Chris Lowery, Kirsten Reed, Shane Smith, and Josh Coots; retired teachers Robert Kelly and Carol Biel; and graduates Eric Shaefer and Jessica Cleary.
