"It was an honor and privilege to be given this prestigious award. Coaching the team these past nine years (10 years in October!) has proven to be a very rewarding experience,” Mr. Tong said. AHS’s Speech and Debate team ranks Top 5 in the state and Top 20 in the nation. The team was founded in 1898 when the school was founded.
