Plano Debaters Advance to Final Four!

I had mentioned earlier how wonderful it was that Plano Senior High debaters had advanced to the "Sweet 16" round of the Bickel & Brewer/New York University National Public Policy Forum.

Our kids are in New York right now, this weekend, April 17 to 19, competing in the final four. Here is a press release describing the event. Isn't this fantastic!?

I've said before that we should rear up our children as though each might become President of the USA. Here is a link to my blog post on a speech writing project to support our children who might run for President one day.

It is great that the Bickel & Brewer Foundation supports the National Public Policy Forum (NPPF).

I love Plano. It's a great community. That is why I run for the Plano school board, because I love Plano and want our schools to give our children the best education they can get.
