Last weekend, The Harker School hosted more than 450 students, coaches and parents from various schools to participate in this year’s Nichols Invitational Debate Tournament at the upper school campus. Nearly every classroom and conference area was used to run the tournament. Because they represented the hosting school, Harker students were only permitted to compete in the policy debate. Harker students were nevertheless highly involved in the tournament, working hard to make sure the event ran smoothly.
Greg Achten, an upper school debate teacher, reported that the tournament “was a great success and we have received effusive praise from our guests about our hospitality and our facilities.” He went on to thank all involved for their participation and support.
