Anish Beeram ’23 was selected as a member of the USA National Debate Team. He is one of 12 students nationwide chosen to represent the United States of America at national and international competitions. Anish joins a group of the most elite debaters in this country and will be competing at events including the World Schools Debating Championships (the debate Olympics) where teams representing over 50 countries will compete for the World Championship Title. Selection for USA Debate was fiercely competitive and involved four rounds of elimination taking place over three months in which Anish advanced amongst hundreds of applicants to obtain this most prestigious position. This is also the first time that a student from San Antonio has been chosen to represent the United States on the National Debate team.
Anish started his debate journey as a middle school student six years ago and has competed primarily in Congressional Debate. He is extremely honored to represent his school, his state, and his country as a member of Team USA this year!
