UNI's Marilyn Shaw was inducted into the Iowa High School Speech Association Hall of Fame at the 2019 IHSSA Coaches Convention.
The hall of fame is the highest honor the speech association may confer on an individual. It is presented to a distinguished individual of state wide reputation and outstanding accomplishments. The contribution and service given by the inductee stem from dedication and commitment to the Iowa High School Speech programs beyond normally expected and superlative identification.
The only other UNI member of this hall of fame is G. John Hall, who was inducted in 2004. Kenneth Butzier from the Lab School was inducted in 1986. She joined the 2019 class with UNI alum Dennis Doyle of Central College.
