RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -– The University of Nevada, Reno Debate Team has a lot to celebrate this year. The team won the National Parliamentary Debate Association Season Sweepstakes National Title, ranking first out of 189 schools. The Nevada Debate Union, part of the Department of Communication Studies in the College of Liberal Arts, was selected by the Associated Student of the University of Nevada as the Outstanding Club of the Year, and two of the top debate team members were selected as the Outstanding Club Leaders of the Year, for both the men and women’s categories.
Team members, coaches and supporters will celebrate the award-winning season and recognize these honors at the Nevada Debate and Oral Communication Awards Ceremony on Monday, May 5. In addition to recognizing the team’s accomplishments, several awards and scholarships will be presented. The reception begins at 4:30 p.m. and the ceremony begins at 5 p.m. The free, public event is held in the Great Room of the Joe Crowley Student Union on the fourth floor.
“The team’s success relies upon the hard work of students, the assistance of staff, faculty and administration, and a supportive group of debate alumni,” University Debate Coach and Director of Forensic Phil Sharp said. “This event is an opportunity for these groups to come together and celebrate another impressive season while emphasizing the importance of oral communication and civic engagement.”
