Celebrating their 10th anniversary, the Chandler School Debate Team participated in this year's Regional Debate Championship, where the team of Katie S., Chase W., and Noah F. came in first overall, marking the first time in Chandler history of debate that they have won at this level!
Noah also made history by winning the gavel and being named the number one speaker overall for the tournament. This is a feat that had yet to be accomplished by a Chandler School debater.
