Thirty six coaches have been inducted into the Georgia Forensic Coaches Association Hall of Fame.  Every other year the GFCA Executive Committee and Hall of Fame members induct new members in the hall.   

To be eligible for our Hall of Fame, coaches must have coached in Georgia for at least five (5) years.   The coach will have promoted interest not only through the strength of their program, but also through the Association itself.  The coach will have demonstrated that speech and debate is the ultimate tool for education and communication.
