Jackie Massey - Recognition Richly Deserved
Jackie Massey, a UVM faculty member who teaches Speech courses, was named Eastern USA Debate Coach of the Year for the 2000-2001 season in a ceremony in Boston at the CEDA East Region Championships, where his teams won the first place sweepstakes award. He received a standing ovation from the crowd, a well deserved recognition to his hard work and determination he has shown all year long. Sam Nelson of the University of Rochester, in remarks upon presentation of the award, mentioned Jackie's determination to do whatever it takes to get as many students as possible to debate. The size and depth of the UVM squad is a testimony to his achievements.
Even when there is no tournament scheduled, the LDU is active. Here are some of the things which took place this last weekend....
