The Clayton State University student debate team served as volunteers on Saturday, May 14, as they took part in the Fitness Camp sponsored by The Kevin Henry Foundation.
The Fitness Camp promoted the use of everyday exercise and academics among the Atlanta-area youth, ages eight to 11. The campers participated in a quiz bowl geared towards CRCT Reading, Math, and Science criteria.
The debate team volunteered from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., assisting with setup and administering the forum for the quiz bowl as well as creating the questions. The event was held at Sky Haven Elementary School, 1372 Skyhaven Rd., SE, Atlanta.
According to Debate Team President Kai Mosley, a graduate of Tri-Cities High School in East Point, the team participated to promote the organization to the Atlanta Metro area, to network with possible sponsors, and to contribute to Clayton State's legacy of volunteering and community service.
Other Debate Team members taking part in the Fitness Camp were Secretary/Treasurer Shabreka Holly (Cordele, Ga.), Public Relations Director Syreeta Palmer (Atlanta), and Chanel Chauvet (Hollywood, Fla.)
Creating 50 questions from Georgia CRCT criteria, the debate team quizzed the students in a vast majority of biology, reading comprehension, mental math, fundamental math problems and more. Afterwards, the top five scoring students selected from a pool of prizes, including donated Clayton State merchandise, while everyone received prizes for participation.
The debate team would like to thank the following contributors towards the event: the Debate Team advisors: Dr. Rafik Mohamed and Jacqueline Person, The Kevin Henry Foundation, Carolina Amero, assistant vice president-Auxiliary & Administrative Services, Amy Poole from Admissions, Sky Haven Elementary School and the Department of Campus Life.
