“I am still involved because the BDL left such a powerful impact on me, that I want to help the BDL continue their mission to offer educational opportunities to those who aren’t able to get this in a traditional classroom setting. I have learned so much from the BDL, and have grown and matured through ASD.

I love seeing the BDL grow and being able to continue to pass on these educational opportunities in a formal debate setting, which is critical to improve public speaking, speaking out, and being comfortable making an argument!”

— Shayne Clinton

former debater from Boston Latin Academy
