Bro. Edward Alexander (Zeta Eta) competed in the preliminary rounds against representatives from the other regions and advanced to the finals. The Eastern Region placed 3rd in the Oratorical Competition. Congratulations to Bro. Alexander for his outstanding accomplishment !!!
The debate team, which consisted of Bro. Sterlin Moye (Gamma) and Bro. Chibueze “Chib” Onwunaka (Gamma Beta
Alpha) defeated the Great Lakes Region during the preliminary rounds and advanced to the finals. The Eastern Region competed against the Southeastern Region during the final round, argued in the affirmative for universal healthcare, and overall placed 2nd in the Debate Competition. This was quite an accomplishment, considering the fact that the two brothers officially became a team less than 72 hours prior to departing for Little Rock. Imagine what could have been accomplished if these two brothers had worked as a TEAM for a longer period of time!!!!!!! Congratulations to both young men for their outstanding accomplishment.
In 2013 (Conclave Philadelphia), the Eastern Region only had a competitor in the oratorical competition and placed 3rd. In 2015 (Conclave Little Rock), the Eastern Region competed in the Oratorical Competition and the Debate Competition and placed in both competitions. The other regions are certainly taking note that the Eastern Region is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to these competitions. Sincere thanks to Brothers Alexander, Moye, and Onwunaka for stepping up and representing the Eastern Region !!!!
THANKS to all of the Brothers that played a role in helping these young men prepare for the competition, whether through practice sessions, information updates, links to read current statistics, transportation to and from Conclave, providing advice, being a sounding board or providing a word of encouragement….
