The Butler University Speech and Debate Team hosted a High School tournament on December 8, 2012. Eighteen High Schools attended from as far away as Evansville and as close as Fishers. There were 250 students plus coaches, and parents in attendance. Warren Central High School won the large school division and Burris Laboratory School won the small school division.
I would like to thank the College of Communication faculty, Dean Edgerton, Associate Dean Savage, Director of Debate, Dr. Casey Kelly, Mae Pierce, and the Butler Speech and Debate Team for all their support for this exciting event. Faculty and students gave of themselves during the last week of classes and that means a well run tournament and, hopefully, impressed students who will want to come to Butler in the future!
