Gilman students competed at a debate tournament at Reservoir High School in Fulton, Maryland, on Saturday, December 16. The tournament was the fourth of the year hosted by the Baltimore Catholic Forensic League (BCFL).

Rik Chaudhuri '26 and Jeffrey Hu '26 competed in a team event — Public Forum Debate — debating the resolution: The US federal government should forgive all federal student loan debt.

The team was undefeated at 3-0 and came in fourth overall. Of 80 competitors, Chaudhuri was fourth speaker; Hu was 13th. 

“I’m very proud of the growth they have shown from year to year and how hard they worked this tournament,” said their coach, Upper School math teacher Camila Vásquez. “I look forward to their continued growth and success.”

Congratulations to all!
