2018 Texas Star Great Debate to be hosted by Schreiner University
2017 is wrapping up with exciting news about another National Hispanic Institute host change. The 2018 Texas Star Great Debate will be moving to Schreiner University, a liberal arts university in the heart of the Texas Hill Country in Kerrville, Texas. This is the second such announcement this month, coming on the heels of the recent news that the Texas LDZ program is moving to St. Mary’s University in San Antonio.
“Schreiner is very committed to serving our community and is rolling out the red carpet to receive our Great Debate students this year,” said Nicole Nieto, NHI Executive Vice President. “We have felt exceedingly welcome on the campus and feel certain that our students and families will benefit from open doors at Schreiner.”
The Texas Star Great Debate is a program that initially launched to serve students in smaller Texas communities who weren’t able to compete for the cities and regions represented at the Texas Great Debate, but it has since grown into a program serving students in multiple states.
Though in one of the most picturesque parts of Texas, in a community best known to Texans for its annual folk festival, Schreiner is located just an hour’s drive from the San Antonio International Airport.
The 2018 Texas Star Great Debate, one of five NHI Great Debate programs planned for the coming year, will be held June 26 to July 1. The other four Great Debate programs will remain at their traditional homes: The Texas Great Debate will be at Austin College in Sherman, Texas, the Midwest Great Debate will be at Augustana College in Rock Island, Ill., the Northeast Great Debate will be at Villanova University in the Philadelphia metro area, and the Texas Ambassador Great Debate will be at the University of Texas at Austin.
The NHI website has the most up-to-date list of the coming year’s summer programs.
The Great Debate and Collegiate World Series programs are sponsored in part by State Farm.
