$10,000 in 10 Minutes!
On Wednesday December 20th during 2nd Block, Student Government will be sponsoring their annual $10,000.00 in 10 minutes Charity Drive. All the money raised will be donated to our own Family Resource center. Some things we offer are after school tutoring, clothing vouchers, food vouchers, eye glass vouchers, educational classes, educational resources and workshops, and family support.

If students are successful in reaching the goal of $10,000 they will be rewarded with an early release from school on Friday December 22nd.

West Debate had an excellent weekend at the Alta Silver & Black Tournament this past weekend. Alta is a national competition bringing in debaters from across the country. and Kenji Aoki and Kiyan Banuri went undefeated to advance to the final round which will be held at a later date. Aoki and Banuri also won 1st and 5th speaker respectively (out of 176 competitors). Their success earns them their second bid to the Tournament of Champions, having earned their first at the Meadows tournament in October. This is Aoki's second year qualifying and Banuri's first. Policy teams Kenny Nelson & Sam Lair were octo-finalists and Matthew Kim & Ramis Banuri were double octo-finalists. Public forum team Mia Yu & Cynthia Chen earned a silver TOC bid when they advanced to octo-finals. Yu was 12th speaker. In Lincoln-Douglas Gideon Gomm was an octo-finalists and 9th speaker. Gomm was the only debater to be ranked in the top 20 of speaker awards from Utah. West's combined effort earns the team the distinction of being the only school represented in octo-finals of all three debate events. Thank you for all the support you give our debaters. Their success is the result of the efforts this entire community.
