PCS High School Debate Team Visits Governor Oliver

The Pohnpei Catholic High School Debate team met Governor Oliver on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at the Governor’s cabinet conference room, Peilapalap, Kolonia. The debate team is preparing for the annual state competitions for the FSM law day debates. State competitions will take place on April 5 and 27 and the final National debate will take place on July 12, 2022. The debate topic this year is whether or not the FSM Congress should establish a national minimum wage.
Principal Yolanda Nanpei accompanied the eight students who are a mix of juniors and seniors to the meeting with Governor Oliver. The students asked a series of questions to gain more knowledge on the debate topic from the affirmative and negative perspectives.
Governor Oliver thanked Principal Nanpei and the students for their visit. He wished them the best in the upcoming debate and encouraged them, as the future of Pohnpei, to continue with their education, stay positive, and not let anyone discourage them in the pursuit of their goals. Joining Governor Oliver to meet with the students was Public Affairs Officer, Mr. Peteriko Hairens, Public Information Mr. Patrick Pedrus, and WD&ST Trainee, Mr. Shane Celestine.
Thank you Principal Yolanda Nanpei and the PCS High School Debate team:
