Lincoln Prep Debaters Compete Nationally
Good luck to Lincoln College Preparatory Academy debaters participating in the National Speech & Debate Tournament in Louisville, Kentucky, this month!
The Lincoln Prep Debate Team was awarded bids to multiple national tournaments this summer. Over Memorial Day weekend, Nadia Richard, Sophia Herrera, Eli Davis and Max Pedreros traveled to Washington, D.C., to compete in the National Catholic Forensic League Grand National Tournament. Nadia finished as a national semi-finalist in Student Congress.
Now Nadia and Sophia are headed to Louisville. Nadia qualified after winning the Outstanding Senator Award at the National Speech and Debate Association Show-Me District qualifier. Sophia is the reigning back-to-back Debate Kansas City Congressional Champion. The tournament is June 12-17.
The Lincoln Prep Debate team is coached by Charles Palmer.
