Message from the Speech and Debate Coach
Since its inception in 2004, the ICS Debate team has consistently taken top honors at the State tournament with numerous State Champions in every category. Students have also qualified for the prestigious National Speech and Debate National Tournament seven out of ten years of the team's existence. When asked about Intermountain Christian School's performance at the Standford Debate tournament, the Tournament Director replied, "Small team, brings a few kids every year; and almost every kid breaks finals."
Ask an ICS debater about it? They will tell you the team is their family. "Trophies gather dust," said Team Captain Michelle Kfoury, "but the memories I made with the team are some of my best in high school."
"I learned how to think and how to write in this class," says current TCU Journalism major Hayes Clement. "Coach Croswhite helped me be the writer I am today."
Katherine Brown, Extemporaneous Speaking State Champion 2014, summed it up this way, "Everyone should be required to take this class, not just because of the incredible things you learn, but it's fun!"
