Debate has existed for thousands of years. It is an activity that
can turn commoners into kings, give voice to the voiceless, and make
the wise appear foolish. The great Greek philosopher Heroclitus once
stated, "All is flux, nothing is stationary." In a time
where the world appears to be changing with increased rapidity, it
is important to determine a way to view the world. We each approach
life with our own lens of understanding or Paradigm. The dialectic
activity of debate is one way to create and test our Paradigm. This
site is dedicated to the great debaters
and orators of the past who have provoked our minds to change. And
to the emerging debaters and orators of the present, who will
continue in their tradition of excellence while shaping the future

nicely together. :)

Kirsten won Nationals! How's that for a way to end their high school
careers? All the glory goes to coaches: Brenden Garrett, Phil Rath
