Milton Debate wrapped up its season with some stellar victories and entry into a new national debate league. One of our teams also completed the year by winning the Steve Stein Award – North Fulton's Policy Debate trophy that is based on their records at tournaments around the state of Georgia. Our younger policy team garnered several speaker and tournament awards throughout the year, finishing up with a 2nd place trophy, as well as two top-10 speaker awards at the 1st and 2nd Year National Championship. Our public forum team, which is a newer addition to Milton debate and consists of all underclassmen, finished strong with their first trip to Harvard and the GFCA State tournament. Several of those students also earned speaker and tournament awards throughout the year, and I can only see them getting stronger in the years ahead. At least four of our debate students will attend prestigious camps this summer at schools like Northwestern and Michigan State, coming back in the fall to be the powerhouse of North Fulton debate.
Message from Ms. Redding: We will be changing our coaching staff next year, and I'm sure that whoever takes over this team will not only be impressed, but will be blown away by the amount of effort, ambition, and discipline these young ladies and men exhibit throughout the school year in the classroom and in their debate rounds. It's been a pleasure serving as your coach for five years!
Thank you to all our ATHLETIC, ACADEMIC, VISUAL& PERFORMING ARTS, & CLUB programs for their hard work and dedication!
