SLA Student Qualifies for World Schools Debate

This past Sunday, SLA senior Tigidankay Saccoh was chosen to represent the Valley Forge District in the 2018 World Schools Debate, to be held this June at the National Speech and Debate Tournament in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Only 12 students from across Eastern Pennsylvania are chosen for this honor each year.
Tigidankay was chosen through an application process based on her commitment to Speech and Debate over the past 3 years, her 470 accumulated competition and service points, and her rank of Distinction within the National Speech and Debate Honor Society. 
Tigidankay becomes only the second SLA student to qualify for the NSDA National Championship, following in the footsteps of Kia DaSilva (class of 2017) who qualified last year, also in World Schools Debate.
