Forensics Takes Two Championships

A small contingent of Truman Forensic Union members attended the Missouri Association of Forensics Activities State Championships Feb. 19-20, bringing home two State Championship awards and several other honors including national tournament qualifications.

Todd Turner, freshman communication major from Chesterfield, Mo., captured the State Championship in program oral interpretation, as well as his first qualification for the national championship tournament in April. Elizabeth Hobbs, junior biology major from Newton, Kan., also secured a State Championship in rhetorical criticism.

The Truman Squad ranked third overall in individual events sweepstakes and overall tournament sweepstakes.

In parliamentary debate, the team of Cody Snyder, freshman political science and economics double major from Neosho, Mo., and Hobbs reached quarterfinals. Erin Palmer, freshman political science and justice systems double major from Kansas City, Mo., also reached quarterfinals in a hybrid partnership with a student from William Jewell College.
