Great article on the Benefits of the most unusual way… How debate team is impacting an Aviation Museum, Alaska, World War II, The Red Barron, and Snoopy....Which I also believe is the first time in world history those words have all been used together in a sentence.

Essentially, I was taught not only how to think through a problem, but around a problem."
