Debate Founders Club

The Westminster Founders Club, established in 1997, is an honor given to those four-year varsity debaters who have made important contributions to the Westminster Debate program and have earned an advanced degree in the National Forensic League. Each debater has been awarded with a gavel on Senior Honor’s Night as a token of membership. Charter members (*) are those whose membership was given for accomplishments prior to 1997.
