The Solano Speech and Debate Team are proud to announce that we are the 2023 Phi Rho Pi Community College National Champions! The Phi Rho Pi national championship tournament was held from April 10th – 15th in Washington D.C. Over sixty of the top community colleges from every region the country competed. Your Solano Falcons won Gold Overall Sweepstakes, Gold Debate Sweepstakes, and Gold Individual Sweepstakes, in the Hindman small school division. This success occurred due to the determination, skills, and intelligence of amazing students. We brought four students, and all four students made it into a semi-final or final round. Thank you to our amazing coaches, Dr. Douglas Mungin & Janene Whitesell.
