Rachel Page in Hall of Fame

Rachel Page, Ryle High School Speech and Debate coach, has been inducted into the Kentucky High School Speech League Hall of Fame at the State Championship.

Members of the KHSSL Hall of Fame have had a long term commitment to Kentucky forensics through their promotion of excellence in the study, preparation, and/or performance of speech and dramatic arts in the state of Kentucky. They must be nominated by a peer and selected based on rigorous criteria by the KHSSL Board of Directors. KHSSL is the oldest student organization in Kentucky, celebrating 100 years of healthy competition and public discourse. Page has been a coach for 18 years, producing multiple state champions and national qualifiers, including the state title debate team in 2013.

However, awards are not the main goal. In forensics, students gain skills that enable them to conquer the world: advocacy, logic, teamwork, confidence, presence. According to Page, “the greatest accolade you can receive in this activity is having someone listen to your story and your truth.”

The Ryle Speech and Debate team placed 6th in the state in debate and 11th in speech and produced two state champions: freshman Kelly Helton in novice Lincoln-Douglas debate and senior Evan Bales in broadcasting.

Speech and debate is an academic activity comprised of multiple events, each a different form of public speaking and requires a unique skill set and talent. Similar to athletic sports, speech and debate activities are challenging, competitive in nature, and require regular practice, coaching, dedication, and hard work.
