The debate team has had much success this year while competing in a variety of tournaments.

The new coach, casually known by her students and staff as Burnsey, has pushed the team to new limits this year, showing the competitors true potential.

“I’m super proud of how our kids have done this year,” Coach Burns said. “Our team and our numbers have tripled in size.”

With the team’s success, comes new costs. Like any team that grows significantly in a short amount of time, the expenses for tournaments, activities and shirts have all added up and have been costing students and parents more than the previous years. To help pay for these costs, the debate team is currently having a Mom and Pops popcorn fundraiser.

“Fundraisers help us go to bigger competitions to further grow our team,” secretary Cameron Lange said. “The debate team hasn’t had much recognition so we’ve been given very little money.”

Supporters can buy a $12 bag of popcorn from a debate student, and will have the choice of eight flavors ranging from cheese and caramel to parmesan garlic. Buying one bag from a debate student would mean more funds for the team as they continue to grow their program.

“It helps the debate team because if we don’t get enough money, we won’t be able to do what we all love to do, which is debate,” Alex Rea said. “Debate helps open up so many opportunities for us. These include scholarships, being on a college team and an overall understanding of what is going on in the world.”

Anyone wishing to purchase a bag should go see Coach Burns in E112 or contact a debate student by Monday, December, 5.
