Special thanks to Professor Omedi Ochieng for another stellar debate tournament. Kacie Kyne, Com Studies major, was co-director of the tournament. See the story from Public Affairs: "Senior religious studies majors Chris Kyle and Kaitlyn Turner were the big winners at the 16th annual Tournament of Expressions Speech and Debate Tournament Feb. 28. Kyle and Turner each earned $500 for winning the debate and speech portions respectively. The tournament was funded by the Westmont Provost’s Office and a generous gift from Montecito resident Jean Svoboda. Sophomore philosophy major Megan Monroe won second-place and $250 in the debate contest, which focused on the question of whether it should be legal for people to sell their organs. Kyle, who is from San Diego, and Monroe, who is from Tustin, were the final two students out of 54 who signed up for the debate category of the event.
The great speeches student finalists included second-place winner Sara Reinis ’14 ($250) and third-place winner Bri Popineau ’14 ($150). Turner’s winning speech was “The Perils of Indifference” by Elie Wiesel. Allen Hopkins ’95, an alumnus, Westmont trustee and ESPN sportscaster, emceed the event.
