Debate Goes to 2nd Grade

Recently, members of the Valdosta High School Debate Team jumped in to assist some gifted second graders at S.L.  Mason Elementary School to write speeches about the Great Barrier Reef.   Mrs. Nicole Anderson and her students had completed their research but needed a little bit of help to get the students ready for public speaking.  Enter Owen Anderson, Marvens Cherelus and Drew Correll - VHS Varsity Debaters to coach the students.  
"I wish we had done more public speaking in elementary school like these kids are. I learned as much from them today about the Great Barrier Reef as they learned from me about public speaking," said Marvens.
