Service Awards


Three Pratt High students - Katie Buhler, Emma Fowler, and Miranda Flemming – have recently received Service Citations and national recognition from the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) for their outstanding service to speech education. Students receive a citation for every 100 service points earned through activities such as community speaking or outreach.

Katie Buhler has earned 316 points and was 26th in the nation in the most recent magazine published nationally by NSDA, Rostrum. Her service comes from speaking a great deal as an advocate for 4H around the state, from involvement in acting and speaking for community organizations, and from performance in plays and musicals the past four years.

Both Fowler and Flemming earned the citation for 111 and 105 points, respectively. Both seniors have been heavily involved in organizations where public speaking is valued and desired: 4H or Miss Teen Kansas. In addition, both seniors have performed in many plays and musicals through their high school years, and like Buhler, have given speeches or acted for community organizations.

The NSDA “believes communication skills are essential for empowering youth to become engaged citizens, skilled professionals, and honorable leaders in our global society. We connect, support, and inspire a diverse community of honor society members committed to fostering excellence in young people through competitive speech and debate activities.”

These three Pratt High students exemplify that excellence in their service through the years.
