On Friday, May 10, 2019, two Skyline College/Design Tech High School students, Benjamen Gao (High School Junior) and Amaryllis Gao (High School Freshman) took 3rd place in the parliamentary debate category.
Amaryllis also took home first place for top speaker award, a huge accomplishment in this highly competitive community! San Francisco State University’s Bi-Annual Speech and Debate Intramural Tournament unites forensics programs to offer Skyline College, CCSF, SFSU, USF and other Bay Area students an opportunity to practice and apply methods of public speaking, oral interpretation, persuasion, argumentation and debate.
If you are interested or know someone who might be interested please consider enrolling in COMM 680SB: Forensics for Fall 2019 and join Benjamen and Amaryllis as they help set the foundation for a speech and debate team legacy here at Skyline College.
