Sophomore Trains for Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The Harvard Debate Council was founded in 2017 in an effort to increase minority representation at the program's summer residency. Sophomore Darryl Cooper has passed three debate "auditions" for the program and is one of 26 students in the State of Georgia who made the final cut on Sunday, September 23. Cooper will begin training with the program and hopes to be one of the 400 students selected from across the nation to train under Harvard's coach on the school's campus this summer. Training entails a rigorous 10-month program in which he will explore content in a variety of subjects including, philosophy, political science, sociology, rhetoric, and more.

Congratulations, Darryl!
