On December 1, the Parkview School Speech and Debate team participated in their first tournament, the Heideman Winter Invitational in Tustin. The team did an amazing job with six competitors earning numerous awards!

Kayla Seo competed in Impromptu and Original Narrative, taking home a finalist medal in Impromptu and placed 1st in Original Narrative.
