The Bronx Great Debaters! (5/18)

 Awesome Article on Coach Wendy Specter and the In Tech Academy Debate Team! Coach Spector was recognized by New York State Senator Jeff Klein at a special awards ceremony! "Over the past three years or so under the leadership coach Wendy Spector, the IN-Tech debate team has won a number of top speaker awards, and has placed in the quarterfinals of the debate league. Yet many of the team members see debate as much more than an extracurricular activity — they see it as a way of life."  Read the complete article by clicking here!
