News From Lindsey Wilson College
Lindsey Wilson College Junior, Logan Adams, a Human Services & Counseling major from Somerset, KY has been selected as a College Debate 2016 Delegate. He will be a key part of a national, student-led conversation around the key issues that resonate with younger voters.
This first-of-its-kind initiative was created by Dominican University of California, a Voter Education Partner of the Commission on Presidential Debates. College Debate 2016 will draw on technology and social media to generate discussion of issues important to students, and to bring those issues to the attention of the moderators of the Presidential Debates this fall.
The Delegates attended a week long planning and training session this past June on the Dominican campus in San Rafael, California, to organize issue-focused events and outreach on their home campuses. The programming will focus on promoting civil discourse, understanding responsible digital citizenry, and avoiding stereotypes and assumptions while focusing on the issues rather than party politics.
"It was a great experience and I feel like it really reinforced the need to be open minded, but still firm in your beliefs," said Adams, "To be in a setting where I was surrounded by students who didn't necessarily have my same background or belief system, but were still open to share and listen was very rewarding."
Adams has recently flown off to San Rafael once again to attend the 2016 College Convention. This event will provide a forum for focused discussion on national youth issues. The culminating event includes a 90-minute moderated Town Hall meeting, which will be streamed live to delegates' home campuses across the country.
This will be taking place from 7pm-8:30pmCT, on Wednesday, September 7, 2016. You can join in via live streaming on collegedebate16.org, listen to live podcast broadcast by Voispot via the Vois app, or listen to live audio broadcast by Penguin Radio. To interact with Adams and the rest of the convention, use the hashtag #CollegeDebate16 on any social media, but specifically Twitter. The final product will be a memo to the moderators of the 2016 Presidential Debates that will contain specific questions the College Delegates want the candidates to address.
Adams says that if it were the foundation of groups at LWC, he would not have been as likely to speak up at the event.
"The fact that we have such a diverse campus that has groups like Bonner, who discuss diverse problems really helped," said Adams, "If I had one take away that I'd like to bring back to campus, it's that we all need to learn how to establish common ground among each other despite our differences, and do it while still being respectful."
