UPDATE: Four Grady High School alums chosen to debate at National Collegiate Tournament
Holden Choi ('12), Ben Dean ('12), Michael Barlow('11) and John Holland ('10) , all Grady HS alums, have been chosen to compete in the National Debate Tournament. John and Ben are partnered together for Emory (aka Grady Annex) Michael is representing West Point; Holden debates for Georgetown. All of them are Atlanta Urban Debate alums. It is quite unusual to have representation from a single high school and Atlanta Urban Debate be chosen for the National Debate Tournament. The NDT is the sine qua non of college debate- only the elite get to attend, the competition is fierce and it is considered the most prestigious debate tournament in all of debate- high school and college/international.
NOTE: this replaces a previous post where Holden, Ben, and John had been waitlisted.
