Whether or not the United States should reduce its military presence in Afghanistan was the topic the Asbury Park High School team debated at a tournament in Baltimore last month that earned them the first place trophy. Today, they participated in a scrimmage on the same topic. The high school students’ debate team was created and mentored by Monmouth University students with the help of a seven-thousand dollar grant from a bank.
