Thurgood Marshall Academy’s Debate Team continues to make waves in the DC Urban Debate League circuit this year. We had both veteran and novice teams competing at the Saturday, December 13th tournament, held at Washington Latin Public Charter School going head-to-head against new teams from the region that have recently joined the local debate circuit.
We are proud to announce that senior debater Cer’cia Wallace was recognized as a top 10 individual speaker. She also excelled in team debate as well. She, along with sophomore Kiara Clark, recorded a top-10 team placement (7th place). We’re proud of all the Warrior Debaters who brought their A-game this weekend, including seniors Eric Izzard and Sydni Foshee, and our team of novice debaters, sophomores Jeremiah Simms and Rose Bowers.
Our next tournament will be on home turf – Thurgood Marshall Academy will be hosting the February tournament on Saturday, February 21st.
