Congratulations to Kevin!
Early this year, at Harvard National Invitational Speech and Debate Tournament, Kevin braved the Junior Varsity Lincoln Douglas debate field, ranked 33 (Triple Octo Finalist) out of 238 accomplished debaters (against sophomores and juniors) from all over the United States.
Kevin is under the coaching of Richard Zhou, Carlisle resident Junior. Richard took the 2010 Novice Lincoln Douglas (NLD) Debate State Champion, 2011 Varsity Lincoln Douglas (VLD) State Final 3rd place, and 2011 Group Discussion (GD) Champion. For 2012 State Final, Richard had another success on the Student Congress (SC) at the State Final. Richard tied at 3rd place out of 29 outstanding student senators with his second attendance in Student Congress. Congratulations to Richard!
For this year CCHS debate team, Richard Zhou also took the Champion and 1st Speaker in VLD on Nov 19, 2011 at Lexington High School Tournament and Kevin Fan won several top awards in GD against mostly juniors and seniors.
