Dan Leahy was a strong supporter of encouraging all students to participate in speech and debate. 

Dan believed that every student should have access to an education that would shape them into critical thinkers, articulate speakers, and advocates for their communities. Through speech and debate, students learn essential skills that prepare them for success in both academics and their careers. 

This scholarship seeks to honor Dan Leahy’s legacy by supporting high school and community college students so they can afford higher education. 

One winner will be a high school student who has participated in speech and debate or mock trial and will be attending a four-year college or university after graduating. The second winner will be a community college student who has participated in speech or debate or mock trial.

To apply, tell us about someone you admire and how they have inspired your pursuit of higher education.
