College Debate Community,

I am happy to announce that I have accepted an offer to become the next Director of the Dartmouth Forensic Union.  I am overjoyed to return to a program and a space that meant so much to me as a student and assistant coach.  It is my hope that as a Director I will contribute positively to the character, growth, and future of our larger college debate community.  The legacy of former Director Ken Strange cannot be overstated and establishes an inspiring example for the next stage in Dartmouth Debate.

Eric Ramsey, Dean of Student Life at Dartmouth asked me to post on his behalf the following message from the Dartmouth Student Life Community:

It is with great pleasure that I write to inform you all that John Turner ’03 has accepted the Director of the Forensics Union position at Dartmouth College.  John comes to Dartmouth from Emory where he served as Associate Director of Debate for the past four years.  Prior to working at Emory, John received a Master's in Speech Communication from the University of Georgia after serving as Assistant Debate Coach at Dartmouth for six years.  John graduated with the class of '03 at Dartmouth.
I look forward to working with John upon his return to the Dartmouth community in mid-August.

I would like to echo the Dean's excitement.

Thank you,
John Turner

Six years ago today, we lost Ross K. Smith. I was extraordinarily privileged to have had Ross as both a coach and a colleague. He still shapes much of how I coach and teach. Even today, a new generation of debaters still learns from him thanks to videos from some of his last lectures that summer.

Each year since, I have asked you a favor, and today I ask you again:

Take a moment today to reach out and thank someone in the debate community for being a part of it. It would mean a lot to me and to those whose lives Ross touched.

If you need a place to start, here’s an idea from Ross, in one of his last posts to Edebate*:

"[eDebate] Thanks to our competitors

Ross Smith smithr at wfu.edu

I've received some e-mail and facebook praise (thanks!). I want to issue
a broader reply.

Maybe it's just too obvious to state, but I've rarely been a person of
few words (once you get me going) . . . .

Thank you competitors. Every one of you, coach and debater, who face our
teams and push our teams to think harder, research deeper, get outside
of our narrower confines. You pose questions to our coaching, without
which questions we could not learn and improve.

On occasion, hopefully rare, we do not reciprocate or we fail to
appreciate. When we (being human) are at our worst we might denigrate. I
hope and trust not, but know that we mean not.

We can't do it without you.

What are the best debates you have judged or debated in? They are
closely contested. They reflect a commitment to excellence. That
atttribute can never be one sided.

We are at our worst and best when we put everything we have into a
debate and come up on the short end. But who gave us the opportunity to
be triumphant and feel that the win was meaningful in the first place?
Our competitors.

Thank you.

Thanks to everyone for reading, and thank you for being part of this community.

Greetings all!

As we wait for the topic voting results, I want to invite you all to Atlanta for GSU's National Debate Tournament (invitation attached).

I am moving my family down as I write this; the dates are correct and the hotel block is set. We'll turn tabroom on for registration ASAP.

I'm very excited about hosting everyone-- looking forward to a good time of debate for all students!
