NHI (National Hispanic Institute) participants from Holy Cross of San Antonio are Back to Back Champions of the annual Ambassador Great Debate. Because Holy Cross is one of the top producing Great Debate schools, we now have the opportunity to host the Silver Cup Trophy for 3 weeks.

At the beginning of October the teams were recognized at City Hall with the Silver Cup and it has made its way to different high school campuses since then. Now, it is our turn to host the trophy.

Please be sure to stop by the school office and see the trophy as it is proudly displayed at the front desk.
