Speech & Debate empowers youth to use their voice to tell stories, create arguments, and give speeches that are desperately needed in today’s society. I am grateful for the experiences I’ve had, the pieces I’ve created, and the people I have met. To the underclassmen, each and every one of you in this activity have so much talent left to give, so speak up, share your stories, use your voice, and leave your mark.

Thank you speech & debate for allowing me to find the power in my own voice and giving me a platform to share my story. These have been the best four years of my life!

Debate has not only taught me how to argue, but it has also taught me what things are not worth arguing over.
