🌟 Stellar Performance by VDA at Fullerton! 🌟
This past weekend, our VDA students brilliantly showcased their debating skills at the Fullerton Fall Debate Tournament hosted by California State University. A standing ovation to Hilary and Alina for clinching the championship in the novice category!
Further, VDA talents impressed with their top placements in the middle school and open divisions, securing spots in the final 4, 8, 16, and 32 ranks. And let’s not forget the eight speakers who took home the Top Speaker awards – a testament to VDA’s comprehensive excellence. A resounding success for our team!
Time to rejuvenate as we set our sights on the upcoming challenges at U Mich and Brown.
Congratulations to all!
