Patrick Henry College
Dr. Michael Farris speaking to visiting families
This week Patrick Henry College hosted the annual National Christian Forensics and Communications Association (NCFCA) national tournament. Families from across the country converged on the campus of PHC for a week of forensic competition, ranging from humorous interpretations to debate. The tournament highlights were the final championship rounds and presentation of awards, held Friday night in The Barbara Hodel Center.
Patrick Henry College and the NCFCA have had a close relationship since before the College had accepted a single student. The College opened in 2000, but PHC’s founder, Dr. Michael Farris, and his daughter, Christy Shipe, co-founded the original organization under the umbrella of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) in 1995.
