The Cedarville University Debate Team received a special year-end award for the 2005-2006 season at the National Parliamentary Debate Association (NPDA) National Debate Tournament in Corvallis, Oregon. This award was due to the team’s 14th place rank among approximately 400 member schools of the NPDA. The current placement betters the team’s previous rankings of 40th in 2005 and 72nd in 2004.
In addition to receiving this recognition, the team received the top ranking within NPDA for the state of Ohio, for Cedarville’s five-state district, and among institutions affiliated with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).
The debate team is coached by Dr. Rebecca Border Sietman ’99, who is an assistant professor of communication arts.
