SEM Super Debaters

Roland Parrish Scholarship Debate

Juan Diaz and Sophie Rahman won the first inaugural Roland Parrish Scholarship Debate on January 29, 2019 at James Madison High School. They successfully convinced three judges that America’s electoral college system ought to be abandoned in favor of a popular vote. Both debaters will win $5,000 in scholarship prizes from Mr. Parrish, in partnership with DISD. Congratulations to our colleagues from Irma Rangel, who won second place. To qualify, Juan and Sophie were the first place team at the Dallas Fall City Championship.
