Freshman at Washington and Lee University
Collin is the Public Forum captain on the Corona del Sol High School debate team, where he founded the PFD program his freshman year. Over the course of his career, he has been an active competitor on both the Arizona and National Circuits. Among his many statewide championships, Collin is most proud of championing the Millard North Round Robin, reaching out-rounds at Yale, Alta, and Millard North, quarter-finaling at ASU, and competing at the Tournament of Champions. During his senior year, Collin shifted his energy to his school’s fledgling team, quadrupling membership and guiding his novices towards championing a number of their own tournaments on the Arizona Circuit.
In addition to his experience in debate, Collin is also the President of his school's DECA chapter, where he has amassed four consecutive state championships in the Principles of Marketing, Business Services Marketing, Independent Business Plan, and Automotive Services Marketing events, qualifying him to the international level all four years of high school. He also founded and fostered a nationally-qualifying team for the Team America Rocketry Challenge. Collin cannot wait to work with Capitol Debate this summer!
