Forensic Team Claims Multiple Victories

Truman’s Forensic Union scored high at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Mo., for the fourth annual Bob R. Derryberry Memorial tournament, Sept. 30-Oct. 1.

Freshmen Thomas Segroves and Nicole Johnson both advanced as novice semifinalists in Lincoln-Douglas debate. Sophomore Johnathan Christy took first place in the open division of Lincoln-Douglas and earned a 100 percent win record in elimination rounds at the tournament. The team next competes at the Missouri Mule and Dale Carnegie tournaments Oct. 15-16 at the University of Central Missouri.

Participation in the forensics program is open to any Truman student in good standing, regardless of prior speech and debate experience. For more information on how to get involved, visit, contact Christopher Outzen, director of forensics, or Craig Hennigan, assistant director of forensics.
