    Congrats on all of the speech events. That’s great to see so many students being actively involved. I didn’t see any results for debate included with the forensics team. Are there any students doing the debate circuit?

  2. Kristofer Kracht says:

    Mike, thank you for the congratulatory note. Our program is a comprehensive program, meaning we compete in both individual events and Parliamentary Debate. We have roughly six students traveling to local debate tournaments. We have captured the state debate title four out of the past five years.

    That’s great. No more CEDA?
