Executive Director

Benjamin Hagwood

A true advocate for education, Benjamin Hagwood I feel in love with speech and debate as an aspiring college student. Developing a passion for argumentation and advocacy he began teaching and coaching at all levels: college, secondary and primary schools. Competitively, Benjamin’s teams have continuously ranked 1st in the all categories over the last seven years amassing more than a dozen national championships. Benjamin’s accomplishments continue outside of the classroom as he served on boards for the Cross Examination Debate Association, the Equity Committee for NSDA (US), the Harassment Committee for the National Debate Tournament and most recently as the Chair of the Association of Black Argumentation Professionals.
