Lamar State College – Orange congratulates Robert Rezaie for his stellar performance during the Texas Community College Forensic Association State Speech and Debate Tournament this weekend.
Robert competed in Parliamentary Debate at the tournament with a Del Mar College student and together they made it all the way to the semi-finals. They placed 3rd in the state.
Additionally, Robert placed 5th in the overall debate speaker in the Parliamentary Division. He also placed 4th in Impromptu Speaking and 5th in Persuasive Speaking.
Kevin Doss, LSC-O Speech and Debate Director, said he is particularly proud of Robert’s Persuasive Speaking award because Robert used a speech he originally created for his Speech 1311 class this semester. Robert also used historical references he learned in his LSC-O history classes in his Impromptu Speaking rounds.
“I love it when a student can apply what he/she is learning in the classroom to a life situation,” Mr. Doss said.
The tournament was hosted on the campus of San Jacinto College – North.
