Sponsor: Ms. Orndorff
Room: C-207

Political Debate Club was formed to fill the desire of students for a safe forum in which to talk through their ideas about politics, both in the United States and abroad. The debate format is used to assist in the positive growth of knowledge by researching topics, public speaking, and listening to understand. We have a lot of fun trying to change each other's minds! There are also round table discussions to foster inclusion for those members who wish to be part of the conversation but prefer not to debate one on one. The club welcomes and respects students with varied beliefs, backgrounds, and understanding. We believe that more can be learned from an opponent than from a like-minded friend. NO "GROUP THINK ALLOWED!" .
