The Georgia Debate Union has partnered with the Digital Debate Camp to expand access and opportunities for high school debaters within and beyond the state of Georgia.  It services high school policy, public forum, and Lincoln-Douglas debate formats.  

The Digital Debate Camp, created by Georgia Debate Union assistant coach and PhD Candidate in Communication Studies Steven Murray, is an online debate camp aimed at lowering entry barriers for students who want the benefits of debate camp but who struggle to afford the cost of attending.

More information about the Digital Debate Camp can be found here:

Congratulations to Shunta Jordan a member of the University of Georgia Alumni Association’s 40 Under 40 class of 2013!  Shunta is a highly successful debate coach and teacher at Pace Academy.  We are excited that an alumnus of the debate program has been recognized for her contributions to the interscholastic debate community and the Pace academic community.

I would encourage UGA debate alumni to nominate other members of our community for awards like this that you identify in UGA mailings.  Brent Culpepper was the person who did the work to craft Shunta’s case for the committee.  The 40 under 40 winners are prominent graduates have made an impact in business, leadership, community, educational and/or philanthropic endeavors. They've demonstrated dedication to the University of Georgia and its mission of teaching, research and service.

The ceremony is scheduled to take place on September 19th at the Georgia Aquarium.

Go Dawgs!
