Westside High School hosted the HISD preliminary rounds of HUDL's 2019-2020 City Championship Tournament on February 1. Students were delighted to see Mayor Sylvester Turner, himself a debate alumnus from the University of Houston, welcome the competitors and tell them how his time in debate shaped his life. The Mayor even took in a debate round and shared pointers with the teams as they continued their push for the title. Competitors from the more than two dozen schools in attendance presented the Mayor with a shirt signed by students in gratitude for his time and support.
The next City Champions will be crowned February 22, when elimination rounds continue at the Bob Casey Federal Courthouse in downtown Houston. Good luck to all the competitors.
