Highland debate team shines at state

April 4, 2015

When Kellse Cornett and Cheyanna Petty arrived at the University of Texas in Austin for the state debate finals in March, they weren't unnerved.
The Highland High School sophomores were used to debating above their University Interscholastic League (UIL) designated 1A class. There aren't many Class 1A schools in the area that even have a debate squad, so in order to compete, Cornett and Petty — along with sophomore team Dylan Miles and Emily Hamilton and seniors Taylar Hammond and Kevin Pantoja — regularly squared off in matches of verbal wit with 3A, 4A and even 5A schools.
