Hard work, dedication, and lots of research is paying off for some Lubbock High School debate students. Five seniors and one junior from Lubbock High are traveling to Atlanta, Georgia for a National Debate Competition.
It's their chance to show-off their speaking skills and win recognition as the best in the nation when it comes to debate. Lubbock High senior, Jessica Sudduth, says she's ready.
"Last year, we only took one person and the year before that we didn't take any and that's as long as I've been there. But you know, we've never advanced so we hope we are the ones to advance," she says.
