The 2020 "Tournament of Champions" Awards Assembly
In delivering the Keynote Address at the Tournament's"Breakfast of Champions"
some years past, the theme of the speaker’s address was entitled:
The best of debate is the doing of debate - - - doing it well, doing it honestly and
doing it with a passion that makes one realize just how much one can learn and grow from
participating in this beautiful activity.
Make the most of your journey through debate because
when it is over, and your last round has concluded, the passion will remain alive for wanting
to do more - - - because what you did was so meaningful to your creation of self.
