David Bloom Scholarship - Seniors Take Note

David Bloom was a leading speech and debate competitor at Edina West who died while covering the Iraq war for NBC in 2003.  His family has created the David Bloom Scholarship through the Local Scholarship Program.  This particular scholarship is for senior students who are passionate about and active in either speech or debate during their time at Edina High School.

(I competed against David when I was in high school and he was everything a coach would want - smart, relentlessly hard working, fluent, persuasive, and concise; David worked with me as a student at debate camp and I learned a lot from my practice sessions with him.)
