Excellent Showing for the BCC Speech, Drama and Debate Team

January 28, 2013 | Bronx Community College

The Bronx Community College Speech Drama and Debate team under the guidance of Mrs. Carmen Meyers, had an excellent showing at the Off- Broadway Swing Tournament in Selden, New York. Over the two-day tournament, December 1-2, 2012, twelve schools from across the country competed in ten different events.

The BCC team was the only novice team competing against National Champions from El Paso Community College in Texas, and Bowling Green in Ohio. Tiheba Bain, a new member of the Speech Drama and Debate team, went to finals in persuasive speaking. She placed 7th out of 24 competitors, which is outstanding for a novice in their first showing.

The Dramatic Duo team, Terrence Brown and ODane Myrie, received great marks for their teamwork and connection, and Cesar Maceira, in his persuasive events, was lauded for the content and structure of his presentation.

Watch for the team’s next tournament, the 2013 Long Island Forensics Extravaganza Tournament on February 23-24, 2013!
