Senior Karen Harrison recently completed her college debate career at UGA. Originally from Celebration, Florida (home of Disney), she debated for Wake Forest University for two years before transferring to Georgia.
She finished with a very successful career, clearing at multiple national tournaments, capped off with wins over two first round at-large bid teams en route to the Quarterfinals of the 180+ team University of Texas tournament. Karen twice qualified to the NDT.
For those who haven't yet seen it, the Georgia Debate Union was recently featured in the New York Times for innovations related to paperless debate.
A full list of paperless resources is available after the jump.
Congratulations to graduating senior Brittany Cambre.
Originally from Alpharetta GA and the illustrious Chattahoochee High School, Cambre recently completed a 4 year career at UGA. Her senior year was highly successful: Brittany was in the Octafinals of the NDT, recieved the 10th overall First Round At-Large Bid to the NDT, was in the Semifinals of the University of Texas tournament, and reached the Quarterfinals of several other major national competitions.
Overall, this places Brittany at the top of her graduating class of seniors. Also, she was the first female UGA debater to recieve a first round, make an elim, and win an elim at UGA under the leadership of Dr. Panetta.
Please take the time to congratulate her!
Please congratulate Willy Zhang, this year's most improved debater in the Georgia Debate Union.
Willy, a freshman from Alpharetta, was given the title along with a handsome reward at Wednesday's squad meeting. He earned this distinction by being one of the hardest workers on the team and constantly seeking to contribute and improve.
