Read Victor’s and Chris and Jake’s letters to the debate community.
There are too many people to thank so this list will not be complete. But I do have to give specific thanks to my prior co-owners, Bob Hohman, Chad and Stephanie Kahl, and Chad Ho. I also have to thank the people who made Victory Briefs their full-time jobs, Zack Krevor, Kyle Castelo, Chris McFarlane, Michelin Massey, Mike Bietz, and Conor Moriarty. I have to thank the many, many national champions who gave us credibility as an organization, including Thomas Marlowe, Jay Steed, Stephen Davis, Adam Preiss, Oscar Shine, Adam Chilton, Jed Glickstein, Tara Tedrow, Douglas Jeffers, Taarini Vohra, Todd Liipfert, Shivani Vohra, Ben Sprung-Keyser, Josh Roberts, Laith Shakir, Lawrence Zhou, Ann Miura, Seamus Donovan, Andrew Garvin, John McNeil, Chris Theis, Catherine Tarsney, Noah Starr, Rebecca Kuang, and Danny DeBois. I also have to thank the directors who have shaped the Victory Briefs vision over the years, including Mike Bietz, Jon Cruz, Tommy Clancy, Josh Anderson, Joe Vaughan, Jennie Savage, Stephen Babb, Neil Conrad, Jake Nebel, Catherine Tarsney, Christian Tarsney, Drew Hammond, Adam Torson, Chris Theis, and many others. And I will continue to thank many more people, albeit in a more personal manner.
From Jake & Chris:
Briefs for the new topic will be released within ten days of the topic announcement. We are confident that these will be the best briefs you’ve ever seen, with contributions from an all-star cast of debate minds. The link to order briefs can be found here.
Rest assured, the Victory Briefs Institute will continue and it will be better than ever! Stay tuned for announcements about our staff, location, and dates.
When the two of us first arrived at VBI as roommates in 2007, we would have never thought that someday we would have the incredible opportunity to lead Victory Briefs. Our most impactful educational experiences and achievements were made possible by the Victory Briefs family, and we are excited to continue providing high-quality products to the next generation of debaters.
Welcome to the family.
Chris Theis & Jake Nebel
