SPEECH: Thompson named Coach of the Year

Bill Thompson, an assistant coach for LaRue County High School’s speech and debate team, was named District Coach of the Year March 21 at the annual Kentucky District Tournament of the National Speech and Debate Association held at Centre College.

“I was shocked,” said Thompson, in his fifth year as assistant coach to Katy Cecil. “It’s extremely rare that an assistant receives this honor, and there are so many deserving coaches out there.”
