Two Mexico High School students are in the record books.
Riley Given and Grant Norfleet competed in the National Speech & Debate Tournament this past week and became the first MHS students to break into the elimination rounds.
Given and Norfleet competed in Duo Interpretation as a team and individually in Storytelling.
They finished 41st out of 200 in the country in Duo, while Given placed in the top 30 and Norfleet in the top 60 in Storytelling.
Given is the only MHS student to qualify for Nationals all four years of his high school career and only the third in the Eastern District of Missouri to achieve that distinction.
