Meghan H. '15 and her debate partner, James W. '15, qualified for Nationals in parliamentary debate last weekend at the UPenn Liberty Bell Classic Tournament.
In parliamentary debate, or “parli”, participants are given a resolution and have fifteen minutes to prepare an eight-minute speech.
“My partner and I took fourth and that qualified us,” Henderson said, “We also did well at the Yale at the beginning of this year so those two points combined qualified us to be able to go to California.”
But Meghan and James aren’t the only ones going to Nationals. Spencer P. '15 of Watkinson will also take the trip to the tournament in California after winning with his partner at the Yale competition earlier this year.
