Charles Zenhausern debated for Harrison High School (NY). In just two years of debate, he won the novice divisions of NDCA Nationals, the New York State Championship, and Colleyville Heritage, as well as the JV division of the Glenbrooks and the varsity division of Lakeland. Additionally, he was in elimination rounds at Princeton and Penn, received the National Speech & Debate Association’s Academic All-American award, was ranked the #8 LDer in New York State by the NSDA, and qualified for NCFL Nationals. Charles will attend Brandeis University this fall, where he plans to major in Sociology. He enjoys both Ks and traditional debate, and particularly likes teaching the fundamentals of debate through a critical lens. He’s excited for his first summer at NSD!
