Debate Team Success!
Right before Thanksgiving, the Peabody's debate team took part in the Charlottesville Debate League's latest competition. Students from a number of local schools debated a resolution about whether or not the benefits of fracking outweigh the harms. The team of Ali Bird and Gabe Damiani were the winners! They went undefeated over four rounds. Caroline Grist, who was a "maverick" (the term for being a team of one), finished in third place.
Kes Rodgers, Sascha Rosensweig, Joshua O'Neill Rossouw, Asha Parmar, Sahalia Mwenechanya, and Ronak Ailawadi also competed and did a great job.Congratulate these students when you see them!
