John R. Park Debate Society Wins Three Events at Colorado College

The John R. Park Debate Society kicked off the Halloween Weekend by continuing its competitive season at the Al Johnson Invitational held at Colorado College (Colorado Springs, CO; Oct. 29-31). The competition featured fifteen colleges and universities, including Rice University, Ohio University, and the United States Air Force Academy. Of the nine students in attendance, six entered the Al Johnson as their inaugural college competition.
