4 MIDDLE SCHOOLERS ARE NYS DEBATE CHAMPIONS

Congrats to Floria A., Victoria S., Lisette M. and Dakota C., our New York State debate champions! Middle School Director and Debate Coach Jim Shapiro writes:

"At the conclusion of a 2-day NY State Championship we emerged with two new sets of state champions. Winning with perfect 6-0 records, these young ladies have worked hard, been professionally remorseless on any openings left by their opponents and were recipients of repeated plaudits from their judges. They represented Berkeley Carroll with intellectual passion and panache." Read more.
