Speech and Debate Team - Bigger and Better Than Ever

The Speech and Debate team has been enjoying great success to date.

In the last tournament, Jonathan Pfeffer '22, added two more wins to his a record totaling a whopping six wins already this year. Gary Wu '22, and Abdullah Rafique '21 also each placed in the top ten out of sixty-four competitors as speakers along with posting winning records.

What has been the most remarkable this year is the enthusiasm and interest in the program. The week of 11/18 saw four new students join its ranks with their eyes on competing at a tournament soon. Perhaps a wonderful way to understand its popularity and effectiveness come from 9th grader, Rachel Rubenstein, who beamed about the team: “
Joining the Speech and Debate team was one of the best decisions I have made at Sierra Canyon because it has helped me improve my writing, researching, and presentation skills. I feel much more confident in the way I express myself and talk to people.”

We look forward to seeing what's next for this exceptional team!
