KWU Student Honored as All-American

KSAL StaffApril 10, 2019

A student at Kansas Wesleyan University has been honored as an All-American.

According to KWU, senior Autumn Zimmerman was honored as an All-American at the 2019 Pi Kappa Delta National Convention for debate and forensics. The national tournament was held at Hofstra University in New York and included more than 80 schools.

In addition to Zimmerman, KWU Debate and Forensics Coach Gary Harmon received two top awards: The E.R. Nichols Award “for outstanding contributions in the furtherance of the forensics discipline,” and the John Shields Award for “Outstanding Contributions to Pi Kappa Delta.”

The Wesleyan debate team competed in Parliamentary Debate, Speech and Interpretive events.

Pi Kappa Delta is among the oldest forensic organizations in the United States. John A. Shields and Egbert R. Nichols founded the organization in 1911.

Both were debaters, and felt the need to create an organization for colleges across the country to recognize orators and debaters. Today, the honor society consists of speech and debate educators, students and alumni nationwide.
