Seventh and eighth grade public speaking students visited Regis High School to meet with Mr. Eric DiMichele, the renowned debate coach whose teams have won 29 out of 34 national debate championships. Regis is ranked as the number one Catholic boys high school in the nation. Mr. DiMichele explained the various types of debate and discussed the passion, commitment and work ethic required to win championships. Most of all, he encouraged Ramaz students to just "do it", get involved with debate and to learn by doing instead of waiting because you think you're not good enough. Ramaz students watched several Regis debaters in action and were impressed with their knowledge about history and current events and their professionalism with oratory and debate. The afternoon gave Ramaz students a chance to see excellence in action. We thanked Mr. DiMichele and his students for their time, talent and encouragement.
