West High Students Qualified for the National Speech and Debate Tournament

West High seniors Olivia Grubbs and Mitchell Dunn have both qualified for the National Speech and Debate Tournament. This will be Olivia’s 4th time qualifying in Original Oratory, making her the first student in West High history to qualify for Nationals during all four years of his or her schooling. Olivia will get a $100 scholarship from the National Speech and Debate Association that will be presented on stage during the final rounds at Nationals. This is also not Mitchell’s first time at Nationals – he has now qualified twice in the United States Extemporaneous Speaking category. Congratulations students, and way to represent Davenport!
