Brandon Montes, Alumni Intern

As founding captain of the Overfelt High debate team, Brandon helped grow one of the flagship programs in SVUDL. With guidance and support from coach Mark Wightman and league staff, he helped lead the Overfelt Royal Debaters to stand their ground and make a name for themselves. The team offered Brandon a chance to expanded his skills as well as being able to give back and offer his support to the next generation of SVUDL debaters.

As an intern, Brandon will pursue his passion for coaching and helping novices and new recruits become strong leaders and skilled debaters. He currently attends De Anza community college and plans to transfer next year, balancing his interests in political science and communications. Over the long term, Brandon plans to give back to his community as a politician or public servant.
