Parson named Teacher of the Year, stepping down from Speech and Debate

At the traditional end-of-the-year bonfire for the Green River High School Speech and Debate team, Dan Parson got a surprise.

The bonfire has always been a special time for Parson. He hosts the event in his own backyard, inviting team members to get together for one last celebration, reminisce on the season, burn the ballots from tournaments that didn't go well for them, and generally enjoy time together as the family they've become. Past bonfires have been important events in Parson's life, including being the reason he met his wife.

This year the bonfire was bittersweet, as everyone knew it...
