Kansas Wesleyan announced Thursday that it will honor former Debate and Forensics coach Gary Harmon by christening a scholarship competition in his honor. Harmon retired earlier this month following a distinguished career leading KWU Debate and Forensics, and this competition will focus on students entering that discipline.
“Gary Harmon established a fantastic legacy at Kansas Wesleyan,” said Ken Oliver, KWU vice president of Advancement, Admissions and Marketing. “He had numerous All-Americans and national champions on his resume and built a top-notch program. We are thankful for everything that he did for KWU, and are glad to have the opportunity to honor him with this scholarship competition.”
A date for the first Gary Harmon Scholarship Competition will be announced on KWU.edu when finalized. Multiple awards will be presented, with the top recipient receiving 75% off tuition.
