Kacy Abeln

Kacy found her life’s work through her passion for speech and forensics. She joined the forensics team, competing in both individual events and debate team. A State of Illinois finalist in impromptu speaking, she qualified to compete at the National Individual Events Championship Tournament in all of her events.

Kacy is now working on a master’s in communication at Northern Illinois University. As the recipient of an assistantship, she teaches in the classroom and coaches the university's competitive forensics and debate team. “I hope to become a speech coach and professor one day,” she says.
