Tom Norris - Texas Academic Decathlon Coach-of-the-Year Nominations

Posted on 29 october 2014  | by Sue

The Texas Academic Decathlon is dedicated to the goal of strengthening the academic capabilities of the youth in Texas! We believe one way to meet this goal is to identify, recognize and reward excellence in academics.

The purpose of this award is TAD’s commitment to increase high performance of students in Texas Academic Decathlon programs!

Anyone can nominate a TAD coach – it can come from the principal of the school, a parent of a decathlete, a student on the team, the team, etc.
