Raise support for Westview Speech and Debate

This petition had 339 supporters

Westview High School's Speech and Debate is a club started by students, blossoming from just a few members to almost 100, collecting dozens of accolades and successfully qualifying over 16 students at the state level. Our contributions to the community are extensive, from outreaches to middle school speech and debate clubs, to expanding students' knowledge and capabilities.

We have always been resilient in the face of difficulties, but recent situations resulted in the loss of our coach and adviser. For the past year, we tried running a 100 member club solely on a student executive board and sheer willpower, but the feasibility of being able to run such a massive club purely by students is debatable. 

On behalf of the Speech and Debate family, we urge you to take just one minute to sign this petition and let your voice be heard. Your signatures will ensure we get the support and attention we need, whether it's in the form of a hired coach, an adviser, or funds. Almost all of the schools Westview competes against have hired coaches and/or classes, creating an enormous disadvantage for speech and debaters who work as, if not more, hard. Please do not let the efforts of these students be wasted if we are unable to even sustain the club without the additional support of Westview High School and Poway Unified School District. Thank you for your time and contribution. We will ensure these efforts are not in vain.
