Forensic Union Begins 2016 Season

The University’s speech and debate team kicked off its 2016-17 season Sept. 16-18 with a visit to the Western Kentucky University Fall Fiesta.

The team took six competitors to the tournament and placed third in Overall Team Sweepstakes, a category for teams competing in both speech and debate events.
In addition to the team award, first-year Caleb Daniels reached semifinals of Novice Lincoln Douglas Debate. Daniels also was recognized as the third-best speaker in the same division. In individual speeches, sophomore Jared Roberts was recognized as Top Novice in Extemporaneous Speaking.
Participation in the forensics program is open to any Truman student in good standing, regardless of prior speech and debate experience. For more information, visit or contact director of individual events Christopher Outzen or assistant director of forensics Craig Hennigan.
