Blue Devil debate club debuts


Congratulations to the Walla Walla High School debate club, coached by former Whitman College standout debater and current Green Park teacher Jean Tobin! The club recently competed in the prestigious Whitman College High School Debate Tournament against more than 500 students from around the Pacific Northwest.

Ten brave Blue Devils represented our community and school in the club's first outing and received high marks in what Coach Tobin stated was "an encouraging beginning to a new program at Walla Walla High School."

What makes this first competition an even prouder and more impressive debut is the high level of community support and mentoring received from parent judges and the Whitman College debate program.

To freshmen Jessica Allen, Calvin Brigham, Madison Bronstein, Hope Grant-Herriot, Carrie Moore, Kera Parsons, Bryan Preston, Rosa Tobin and sophomores Clement Cantil and Machado Mijiga, great work and good luck at your next tournament on Nov. 20 and 21 at Eisenhower High School!
