We have reported here that the CDL policy debate team of Misael Gonzalez and Kevin Hirn from Whitney Young H.S. capped off the most successful competitive year in the history of urban debate by winning the 2010 National Forensic League National Championship and subsequently visiting with President Obama in the White House in July.

Misael and Kevin’s accomplishments have been reported by several local media organizations, including WGN, Univision and WTTW. (click on the links to watch the three videos)

As they did during the entire year, Misael and Kevin displayed intelligence, maturity, and grace in their media appearances, doing a wonderful job representing the Whitney Young debate team and the Chicago Debate League. The CDC once again congratulates Misael and Kevin on their unprecedented season.
