Debate Team Hosts National Tournament      

Chris Jeffries

ECC recently hosted the 2016 National Parliamentary Tournament of Excellence(NPTE), becoming the first community college in the history of the tournament to host the prestigious competition. The ECC team of Isaac Curtiss and Mason Jones is the first from ECC to receive a first-round bid to the NPTE and placed 21st in the tournament. The NPTE is the most competitive and rigorous parliamentary debate tournament in the country, where hundreds of students from colleges and universities all over the U.S. will vie for top honors. The tournament was also a homecoming for several ECC grads.
