HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - Hattiesburg High School's Director of Forensics received a prestigious national award for his work with students and the Hub City community.

Scott Waldrop was given the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service award during a national forensics competition last weekend in Union City, California. Waldrop was selected from a pool of seventy one other programs that participated in the event.

A member of the National Forensic League Executive Council presented Waldrop with the award citing his work with Hattiesburg High School students and those across the country that have a passion for forensics.

Waldrop said several factors have been key to Hattiesburg High School's success in the forensics discipline.

"Outstanding administrative support, parental support, we have a huge booster club that does an incredible job and kids that are really dedicated to the program," said Waldrop.

The Hattiesburg High School forensics team is currently preparing for upcoming competitions in Atlanta and at Harvard University. The high school is also hosting the national Hub City Classic forensics competition in February.
