e-Connections Post Rosemont

The Rosemont High School debate team of Kaitlin Raymond and Kaylee Silber — coached by teacher Chris Nelson — captured first place in the Junior Varsity Division at the Santa Clara University Invitational Tournament on March 28.

“In this case, the last debate did not conclude until after midnight, so Mr. Nelson, the parents, and the students arrived home after 3 a.m.,” says Principal Elizabeth Vigil. “We really treasure staff like Chris, who are willing to support these kinds of enrichment experiences for kids. You rock, Mr. Nelson!”
