That – social networking media have proven more beneficial than costly. The annual
Parliamentary-style debate is an entertaining and provocative event, and audience
participation is encouraged.

R-MC's Phi Beta Kappa chapter and its benefactors, Anita S. and John B. Werner ’53.
R-MC Professor Ted Sheckels, the A.G. Ingram Professor of English, coaches the Franklin Debating Society
students. Sheckels is a communication studies and English professor and the
director of speaking for the Higgins Academic Center. Sheckels is assisted by part-time
