The addition of coach Doug Miller to the Fairmont Prep Speech and Debate program has led to resounding success for the team. The Speech and Debate team mainly competes in Public Forum, which is a two-person event. In the 2014-2015 season, the Prep debate team has amassed numerous achievements. Three Fairmont teams have fully qualified to the Tournament of Champions, which is the most prestigious high school debate tournament held in late April. Nick Palmer, Austin Kim, Nick Flores, Meeran Ismail, Kayla Bach, and Jessica Chung will have the honor of representing Fairmont Prep at the Tournament of Champions. In the upcoming week, the Speech and Debate team will be competing at Carlsbad High School. They are competing in the District Qualifying Tournament for the National Speech and Debate Association’s National Championship held in Dallas Texas in late June. Wish them luck in the upcoming weeks!
