Team members seek to glorify God through their interactions, during competition and at all other times, by setting examples of character and integrity on and off campus.The team plans to compete in debate tournaments across the United States, providing participants with opportunities to network with future leaders across America. Members of the debate team may receive academic scholarships to attend Erskine College.
