    UNITED NATION FOUNDATION HELPs TEXAS
    HIGH-SCHOOL COLLECT EMPTY CARTRIDGES

    United Nations Foundation features
    students’ work

    LINDALE, TX – The
    Lindale High School debate team presented the People Speaks Public Forum
    sponsored by the United Nations Foundation on Monday night. The topic
    for the forum was “When it cannot do both, the United Nations should
    prioritize poverty reduction over combating climate change.” An
    estimated 80 people attended the event.

    The forum featured public
    service announcements created by Lindale students. These were
    introduced by Monica Baumgartner. Three of the PSA’s are currently
    featured on the United Nations Foundation website. The PSA’s were
    created by students Katie Irwin, Kristi Karrenbrock and Eric Protsman.
    To view the PSA’s, visit

    The
    forum’s six debaters included Julia Bodiford, Ali Martin and Eric
    Protsman for poverty reduction. Landon Pasby, Katie Irwin and Meredith
    Wilson represented climate change. Video of the debate is available on
    YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7liqIV-oolo.

    The debate
    was conducted as part of a contest entered through the National
    Forensic League and “The People Speak” Forum of the United Nations. The
    team receives points for meeting a number of criteria including the
    attendance of the forum by elected officials. Lindale ISD school board
    members recessed their meeting to observe the night’s proceedings. The
    team received 500 points for each elected official in attendance. Also
    in attendance were Philip Hayes (Hide-A-Way Lake Councilman) and Robbie
    Caldwell (Trustee of Jacksonville College).

    The mistress of
    ceremonies for the event was LHS senior Kristi Karrenbrock. Sayde Pihota
    made a presentation on the team’s recycling efforts. The team is
    collecting printer cartridges for recycling and also receives points for
    the number of cartridges submitted.
    The program included an
    overview of the contest by Nick Seawright. Lauren Langston ended the
    evening with a vote by the audience.“I was very proud of all the hard
    work by the students and felt it was an excellent presentation,” Lindale
    High School speech and debate teacher Janice Caldwell said. “The
    audience participation was excellent.”
