The Park City High School Debate Team is going to Dallas, Texas to compete in the national championships this month. Their coach is retiring this year, but they’ve got a solid plan in place to maintain momentum and continue the success of this relatively new club at the high school.

Assistant Coach and Park City alum, Gavin Serr will travel with the team as he is taking the place of Sharon Ellsworth-Nielsen who is a debate teacher at the high school. She’s been coaching for six years and says the program has exploded with about 150 per kids taking classes.

On today’s program, Summit County Council Glenn Wright member has a recap of Wednesday's meeting. Heber City Manager Matt Brower discusses growth and challenges in Heber City. Park City Transit staff Alexis Verson and Merrilee Hewitt preview Try Transit Week and the summer bus schedule and PCHS Debate Team Coach Sharon Ellsworth-Nielson who is stepping down from a long, successful run as coach and Gavin Serr,  a former and much-decorated team member who is taking on the role of coach, talk about the delegation headed to the National Debate Championships in Dallas later this month.
