The Santa Ana Unified School District would like to congratulate the Santa Ana Unified Speech and Debate program on taking top honors in the recent 2017 National Speech & Debate Tournament, held in Birmingham, Alabama.
Santa Ana Unified’s honorees include quarter finalists Lizeth Martinez (Villa Fundamental Intermediate) and Cielo Echegoyen (Lathrop Intermediate); semi finalists Isabella Guerra (Advanced Learning Academy) and Guadalupe Guzman (Sierra Preparatory Academy); and the District’s first-ever finalist, Gordon Tran (MacArthur Fundamental Intermediate).
