The Claremont High School great debate
Dwarak Reddy, with his debate partner Nathan Morgan seated, responds to a question from the other team during the annual Claremont High School debate competition on Thursday at Taylor Hall. Dwarak and Nathan went on to be the champions of the elimination style tournament that took place over the course of several hours. The teams were given the premise: “Be it resolved the benefits of imperialism which occurred between 1700-1930 outweigh its negative consequences." The students took turns arguing either for the affirmative or the negative and fellow debate students judged their performances. Second place went to the team of Kiana Cavanaugh and Dorothy Kang.
