Donald Hitt Receives Third Diamond Award

The Virginia District of the National Forensics League (NFL) congratulates Donald Hitt of Madison County High School on achieving his third Diamond Award!  This award represents the attainment of over 600,000 NFL points by by his students over the years that he has been coaching.  Mr. Hitt is currently the only triple diamond coach in Virginia.

A diamond award recognizes a professional career that combines excellence and longevity.  The league provides diamond awards based on coach points received.  Coaches receive one-tenth of the points earned by their students and one-tenth of the points earned as a student member of the league.  After a minimum of five years as a league member, a coach who attains 1,500 points is awarded a first diamond; they receive a second diamond for 3,000 points, a third for 6,000 points, etc.  Five years must pass between each diamond award.

Please join us in congratulating Mr. Hitt on this outstanding achievement!
