News: Speech and Debate Team Take Second in State
The Pasadena City College Speech and Debate (PCCS&D) team finished second in the state this past March at the California Community College Forensics Association State Championship Speech & Debate Tournament in Concord. Additionally, the 21-member team earned five gold medals, five silver medals, 14 bronze medals, and the Tim Miller Perpetual Sweepstakes Award. Over the past four years, PCCS&D has placed in the top five in the state.
The PCCS&D team, which is a charter member of the national speech organization Phi Rho Pi, competes in an eight-month long season, from September through April. “We brought the most students to the state competition,” said Joshua R. Fleming, PCC instructor and the team’s faculty advisor. “Seventeen of the 21 students took home at least one medal."
