Six Speech and Debate students from A-TECH are going to the nationals in Dallas on June 15-22.

“This is an opportunity for them to participate in a very high level competition and to distinguish themselves on a national level.” says speech and debate coach Courtney Stern, “The students who make it to nationals represent the top 3% of competitors in the event.”

The students seem enthusiastic about qualifying

“It was amazing I’ve been working on it for about four or five years,” said junior Phillip Irving. “If you would have asked me four months ago I would have said you were crazy.”

There is benefit to the competition, according to student Jaden Nguyen.

“I think a large part of it is getting across a message and being able to passionately convince someone to be able to contribute to a cause you feel strongly about,” said Nguyen. “ I feel like that’s a skill that benefits everyone.”
