The UVM Board of Trustees has two student members, and both of them happen to be debaters. Abigail Trebilcock was selected to serve on the Board of Trustees last year and has now been joined by Sanjeev Yadav. The Board has been very active of late in a number of very important areas, such as the leadership of President Ramaley, efforts to implement the strategic change plan, the capital campaign to increase UVM's endowment, the selection of a new President and Provost, and many other important issues. Often Board meetings have conflicted with some debate tournaments, but both students bring their considerable debate talents to their Board tasks with vigor.
Abigail put it this way, "The combination of the abilities I have developed as a debater and the experiences I am having as a member of the Board of Trustees makes me confident that I will be able to handle the many challenges I will face after I graduate from UVM."
both students and good luck in the future in their important position.
Special thanks to Steph McDonald, Teresa Hill, and Brian Cole who although not attending nationals are working hard to help everyone prepare.
