A super-duper debate ‘shout-out’ to our Grady Jesters, the speech and debate team of Grady High School, who competed against 104 schools and 700 entrants from 22 states in this weekend’s Wake Forest University competition in Winston-Salem, NC.

The Jesters took a team of 10 students and here are the results:

Will Taft, Octafinalist and 10th Place Overall Speaker, Lincoln-Douglas Debate

Gregory Fedorov, Quarterfinalist in Extemporaneous Speaking

Sam Lombardo, Quarterfinalist in Extemporaneous Speaking

Molly Looman, 5th Place, Dramatic Interpretation

Keegan Hasson, 3rd Place, Extemporaneous Speaking

Conor Downey, CHAMPION and 5th Place Overall Speaker, Lincoln-Douglas Debate

A big thank you to our coaches Mario Herrera and Lisa Willoughby, along with volunteer and Grady alum Lucas Bailey (c/o ’11), for your continued dedication to our students and the speech and debate program. Way to go!
