As SVUDL matures, so do our debaters. This past weekend, 8 of our rising stars showed just how far they have come at the Dempsey Cronin Invitational Tournament held at Santa Clara University.
Four teams- 2 from EPAPA, and one each from Oak Grove and Mt. Pleasant- pitted their wits against 14 other teams from our region in three days of intense competition. Our youth truly distinguished themselves: Najma and Blanca both placed in the top 20, and Chris A. from Oak Grove placed in the top 10. Team performance was also excellent- Chris and Najma made it to the Quarterfinals!
Please join us in celebrating these amazing young people and the enormous strides they are making in developing the critical thinking, public speaking, and teamwork skills that are at the heart of debate!
