She has been Reed’s registrar for 10 years.

Reed debaters share
their success

Reed’s student debate team presented President Colin Diver with the first place trophy it captured at the 2003-2004 Northwest Forensics Conference. When the debate team members stopped by to give Diver his trophy, they also brought along just some of the individual awards they’ve won. The two-year-young team is tenth in the nation, according to rankings issued by the National Parliamentary Debate Association.
