Memphis Urban Debate League Success


Read about the Memphis Urban Debate League, a WFGM Grantee Partner:

Nyree, a 17-year-old student, is a proud member of the Memphis Urban Debate League. She is a Senior in high school with the No. 1 Debate Team in the city and also taking college courses locally. I have gained so much confidence since joining the debate league as a freshman.

I can now have a conversation with adults concerning things such as politics and the environment. I have become a better speaker, a more critical thinker, and an excellent researcher. Being a debater has afforded me more opportunities than I ever imagined.

Thank you all.
