Our scholarship is in honor of my high school coaches, Sherry and Jim Langdahl. They coached at Valley City High School, ND, from 1993-2001, putting together a historic run of success. They coached 22 state champions, 59 students to top 8 state finishes, three team state championships and three second place finishes.

Sherry and Jim's legacy is not defined by their competitive success, but the values of hard work, excellence, commitment, accountability, trust, and preparation instilled on a daily basis. They are the reason I continue to make speech my vocation and a significant reason why the summer speech and coaching institutes were launched. Sherry and Jim taught their students to give back.
