Chanhassen High School’s Sam Buisman is two-time captain of speech/debate team.

Chanhassen High School senior Sam Buisman is always up for a spirited conversation, and he’s using his activities in high school to help position himself for a career as a lawyer.

Buisman has been the captain of the speech and debate team in his junior and senior years. He also serves as the co-president of his high school’s chapter of the National Honor Society.

With his government teacher, Buisman and a friend founded a political activism group in school, which has expanded into the Chanhassen Political Activism Club, a non-partisan club dedicated to discussing American politics.
