RESOLUTION NO. 970565

 

Congratulating the UMKC Debate Squad on their third National Debate Championship in four years.

 

WHEREAS, on March 31, 1997, the University of Missouri-Kansas City Debate Squad brought tremendous honor and recognition of the University and the State of Missouri by winning their third National Debate Championship in four years; and

 

WHEREAS, UMKC ranked number one in the nation, ahead of such fine schools as Michigan State University, Northwestern University, Southern Illinois University and the United States Military Academy, and defeated two hundred thirty-seven other colleges and universities in the Cross Examination Debate Association; and

 

WHEREAS, UMKC debate teams won tournaments at Southwestern Missouri State University, California State University at Sacramento, the University of Central Oklahoma, the University of Utah, and closed-out the Mid America Regional Tournament on their way to capturing the 1997 Cross Examination Debate Association National Sweepstakes Award, which recognizes the college program that won the most debates over the course of the 1996-97 season; and

 

WHEREAS, this prestigious National Championship testifies to the exceptional skill and determination of the individual debaters Jenny Barker, Scott Betz, Josh Coffman, Casie Collignon, Eric Jenkins, Myron King, Monte Stevens, and Adam Whyte; and

 

WHEREAS, the outstanding success of the UMKC Debate Square would not have been possible without the input and guidance of Director of Debate Linda M. Collier, Assistant Director of Debate Lea Farstveet, and Assistant Coaches Elizabeth Repko, David Genco and Brian Johnston; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby extend to the UMKC Debate Squad their most heartfelt congratulations on the recipient of this National Honor; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that copies hereof be presented to each member of the UMKC Debate Squad and its Coaches with the best wishes of the Mayor, Council and citizens of Kansas City.
