Bangor High School

BANGOR — Bangor High School announced that Malik Robinson, a senior on the speech and debate teams, has earned more than 1,500 points through the National Forensic League. The league is a Speech and Debate Honor Society that oversees high school forensic competition throughout the nation. Students earn points based on their rankings within speech rounds or their win-loss record in debate rounds. A student active over the course of four years of competition often earns approximately 500 points and a student breaking 1,000 points is as rare as a Maine basketball player scoring 1,000 points in four years.

Robinson broke 1,500 points at a speech tournament in Readfield on Nov. 17, and currently has 1,534 points. The old state record of 1,501 points was set by Bangor alumnus Rami Blair, class of 2012.

Robinson is coached by Dr. Jennifer Page, a Bangor High School speech team alumna.
