Congratulations To Our Lansing High School Debate Coach Larissa Maranell!
Congratulations to our Lansing High School Debate and Forensics Coach, Larissa Maranell, for being recognized as Coach of the Year at the November 4, 2023, Kansas City Kansas Community College Tournament Awards Ceremony. Ms. Maranell was given the recognition with Olathe North Coach Larry Swanson.
"One of the best parts of my job is the time I get to spend with great people who are among the best educators in the country," said KCKCC Coach and Tournament Lead Darren Elliott. "Thanks for making Debate a better place."
Ms. Maranell, who is also our Freshman Class Student Council Sponsor, was honored to receive the award:
"To be completely honest, I was extremely surprised to receive an award. My focus is on the kids and helping to try to get them to be good humans, good community members, and try to get them to a healthy work/life balance. Wins are secondary to that, and it means we aren't always winning, and that's okay."
Thanks for making Lansing USD469 proud, Ms. Maranell!
