Christopher "CJ" Cooper II ’24 Part of Winning Harvard Diversity Project Debate Team

Christopher "CJ" Cooper II ’24 was selected from more than 2,000 applicants for one of 25 spots in the Class of 2022 Harvard Diversity Project.

The Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project is an Atlanta-based pipeline program that recruits, trains, and matriculates highly motivated black youth into a summer debate residency at Harvard University. HDCDP cultivates scholars seeking to further their education at elite colleges & universities.

Over the course of the year, these scholars gave up every Saturday and the entire month of June to study philosophy, political science, rhetoric, debate and numerous high-level disciplines in preparation for Harvard's International Summer Debate Residency & Competition.

CJ and his cohort defeated 200 high school students from 16 countries around the world and brought home their fifth consecutive championship!
