Argyle High School Debate Earns Charter Team Status!
Argyle Debate is #SoaringHigher!
These AHS students have been recognized as a charter team by the National Speech & Debate Association! This is the highest honor a debate team can receive.
Charter status is earned by building a team that is heavily involved in the National Speech & Debate Association honor society, wherein they earn points and distinction through speech and debate competitions, as well as community service, public speaking and leadership activities.
Congratulations to the team and Coach Jessica Reynolds.
