Jack Jenkins Debate Opportunity Fund

The Jack Jenkins Debate Opportunity Fund was established after Jack's tragic death at age 17, to realize his ideal of reducing the economic barriers to participation in debate.  Jack believed debate, as all things in life, should be fair and open, affording everyone opportunity.  

Since its inception in 2008, JJDOF has granted approximately $49,000 to support low-income debaters, providing scholarships to 34 students to attend summer debate institutes, and providing money for tournament and related expenses.  The teams have won numerous awards in the 2011-12 season, including 1st Place Team at UIL District and rising to quarter finals at NFL District.

Coaches report how essential the funds are to their programs.

In February, we had expanded all of our district funds, so we relied solely on JJDOF funds to continue competing in UIL tournaments.  Additionally, JJDOF funds have assisted tremendously in funding out of town tournaments which students really look forward to attending.

- Roxane Lopez, Travis High Coach

The work of the fund is tangible evidence of Jack's ideals, granting life changing experiences to young debaters.  The Lanier debate coach commented that participation in debate allowed a student to, "come out of his comfort zone, take more risks, and push himself past his limitations."  This student said that sports and debate are what keep him in high school.  This fall he is attending college at Kansas Wesleyan.
