On November 2, 2021, the Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) “Speaking for the Future” Debate Initiative Luncheon & Student Exhibition will be held at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Gunster is proud to once again be a sponsor of this program.
The Broward Debate Initiative is a partnership between community businesses and local public school debate programs. Implemented in the 2012-13 school year with 15 high schools, the Initiative is now active at every high school, every middle school, and quickly expanding to all elementary schools and centers. There are approximately 15,000 students now participating, and all proceeds from the event support BCPS students in their competitive debate endeavors.
Join Gunster Chairman and former U.S. Senator George S. LeMieux, along with Laurie Rich Levinson, Eugene Pettis, Michael Satz and Dr. Wael Barsoum, as they host this exciting event.
For more than twenty years, George S. LeMieux has been lead trial counsel in federal and state courts, in civil and regulatory matters, before juries, judges and arbitrators.
