The list of honors awarded to the Forensic Team at Freehold Township High School continues to grow. The group’s advisor Caryn Burstein was recently notified by the National Speech & Debate Association that Freehold Township’s team has ranked among the top 20% of schools nationwide and earned membership in the Association’s prestigious 100 Club.

According to a letter from the Association’s executive director, this milestone demonstrates the outstanding commitment to teaching students essential life skills such as communication, research, listing, writing, and organization.

Students earn points and degrees in the National Speech & Debate Association’s honor society based on competitive and service-related activities. Freehold Township’s chapter achieved more than 100 degrees last year earning them membership in the 100 Club.
