Results from Chengdu, China: Congratulations to George and Griffin

I hope you all had a restful Thanksgiving Break!

Over break, the debate team of George Lefkowicz and Griffin Richie competed in the Chengdu, China Youth Debate Challenge. I’m happy to report that the team went undefeated in preliminary rounds, advanced to elimination rounds and ended up taking 5th place at the China/US competition. They are one of only 2 teams from the United States to be in the top 8 teams. It was a remarkable experience!

I know some asked if they could watch and I meant to let you know that the rounds were not open to the public or I would have invited everyone to sit in the debate rounds. But I told the debaters about the request and they were deeply touched. Thank you!

Thanks for your constant support!
