duPont Manual Debaters Prevail in Grievance against Kentucky High School Speech League (KHSSL) over State Tournament Seeding and Bracketing Errors; Debate Club Scores Big with Wyatt Wilson Scholarships

Led by team captains Ria Jain and Mark Raj, five students, five parents, and sponsor/coach Erica Cooper presented and spoke on Saturday, April 21, in Elizabethtown about the grievance filed by duPont Manual High School against the KHSSL, giving students a chance to put their debate skills to use in a real-life experience. The outcome was a unanimous decision by the KHSSL Board of Directors to award dual championship awards to the debate divisions with seeding and bracketing errors discovered by our students at the state championship. Because of the efforts of our school’s debate club members, students from all over the state of Kentucky will receive trophies and National Speech & Debate Association (NSDA) points that they did not receive at the conclusion of the state championships. Due to the corrections, duPont Manual Debate Club is proud to announce two new state champion wins:

SBDM Election Update

After much research, consideration and discussion, we moved to an online voting system to elect our SBDM parent representative, in order 1) to encourage stronger participation by providing a more convenient method, since we had almost no voters physically showing up in person to vote with the paper ballot system in prior years, and 2) to be more eco-friendly.

Recent input from Dr. Shawna StentonSBDM Specialist with JCPS, has led us to revisit this choice for the current election. Therefore, we are extending the voting period, and reverting to in-person paper ballots

Ballots will be accepted at the following times/locations:
