January 27, 2008 – Pearl City Invitational Debate Congress Champion

Yesterday Claire ventured to Muscatine, Iowa for the Pearl City Debate Invitational (Muscatine is called the Pearl City because there used to be button factories along the Mississippi that made buttons out of mussel shells).


This is the first time Claire has finished first.  In a Congress event, the participants act as congressmen (less the lobbyist money and other vices) and introduce, argue for, and vote on timely issues.  We know Claire has finely honed her debate skills at home and we’re happy that she’s finally rewarded for sharing these skills with the world at large!

    Way to go for it!

  3. Gosh that takes me back. Forensics was the best thing I ever did; I used the prep techniques for every final, every job interview…everything. Congratulations Claire! You will find these skills never leave you. Nice going.
