Chuck came to Damien to coach debate when I was a Sophomore. Chuck made my debate experience a fantastic one. Ryan and I were in the same class together, even debated together as Freshmen. We also shared many classes together in our four years there. Ryan was a fantastic person, smart, and fun to be around. May Chuck and Ryan both rest in peace with our Lord! I have many fond memories of both of them. My best to everyone carrying on the tradition of Damien Debate success!

Damien Debate, under Mr. Ballingall was a tremendous influence on Andres and Pablo Gannon. They both went on to debate at college, Andres then coached high school debate in Miami, and Pablo coached in both Korea and China and he coaches college in the US today. Debate and Mr. Ballingall inspired both to pursue graduate degrees in areas directly related to politics, international relations and communications, and instilled them with character and values. Debate opened very many doors for them, and they are still in touch with their debate colleagues. We owe a lot to Damien High School, to Debate in particular, and to Mr. Ballingall, Mr. Clark, Mr. Fiori, Mr. Forsland and Mr. Skarb.
