Coach and Forensics Advisor:  Nick Phillips

The Bellingham United Debate Club is three BSD high schools debating as one unified team.  We debate Policy, Public Forum and Lincoln Douglas debate in tournaments at high schools and colleges in Oregon and Washington.  Debate is one of the top things that colleges appreciate on your high school resume and is invaluable in securing both college admissions and scholarships.
