Senior Wins Yale Debate Competition

Patrick H. ’20, one of Watkinson’s Global Studies Program diploma students, won the Yale Invitational High School Parliamentary Debate Competition Sunday!! Over 20 hours, Patrick and members of the Watkinson/Westfield Debate Team debated 9 rounds, each with a different resolution, and had just 15 minutes to prep each without sources or internet. Patrick gave the final rebuttal in the semi-final round against a California team that was arguing colleges should provide amenities. Ultimately, 17 of the 19 judges voted for them.
