Forensics Team from PSC Continues Winning Ways

Chicago Heights, IL–(ENEWSPF)– This season has been about accomplishments for the Prairie State College (PSC) Forensics team. In additionto receivingindividual and team awardsat tournaments throughout the season, several members of the team also received special recognition. Etta Oben is the latest PSC forensics student to be recognized.

Oben, of Matteson, received the Don Hagerty Student Fellowship Award at the regional tournament, which was recently held at PSC and was the last tournament of the season before the national tournament. This award is voted upon by forensics students from the region and is given to the single competitor who has best demonstrated the qualities of fellowship, sportsmanship, and forensics competition throughout the year.

“This is a very high honor and a prestigious award, and Etta won it by a landslide” said Dave Naze, one of the coaches of the college’s forensics team.

In addition, Thaddeus Carr, of Olympia Fields; Terrance Clanton, of Park Forest; and Sharnita Redley, of Country Club Hills, each won silver medals at the tournament.

Other PSC students who competed at the regional tournament were Jimmie Johnson, of Matteson; Kate Mathews, of Lynwood; and Sam Sullivan, of Homewood.

“Since not all of our students are moving on to the national tournament, this was a great way to end the season as an entire team,” said Naze. “The coaches are very proud of the time and effort allour students have put forth to represent PSC at the regional tournament.”

The forensics team also is coached by Elighie Wilson and Ed Schwarz, professors of communication.
