Congrats to Sue and Chico.  It must feel great to be going home.  Also,
Pepperdine is being left in great hands and the Waves will keep on
rolling.  Congrats Sarah.  Finally, OU is gaining quite an amazing
coach, scholar, and person in Kylie.  If only the Kansas City Royals
could be as successful in 3 way trades where everyone ends up in great
condition! : )

Big changes are afoot at Pepperdine for the coming year!

First of all, a big congratulations to Sarah Stone Watt, who has been
in a newly established tenure-track Director of Forensics position at 
Pepperdine.  Sarah is busily finishing up her PhD at Penn State and
return to sunny Southern California for the fall semester of this
Please help me in congratulating and welcoming her.  I think this
is a great testament to the commitment that Pepperdine is making to

Second, I will be moving from Pepperdine to Chico.  I will always
myself a Wave, but am excited to be returning to my Alma Mater in
Chico.  I 
am also excited at the return of Chico debate after their year's
Pepperdine has been wonderful to me and this was a difficult decision,
Chico is kind of like going home for me, so it seemed a great
that I couldn't pass up.

Finally, Kylie Robertson, who has served as a wonderful co-director at
Pepperdine with me for the past three years, is moving onward and
She will be pursuing her PhD at the University of Oklahoma starting in
fall semester.  Congratulations to Kylie!  She will be a stellar
wherever she ends up.  I'm only sorry we couldn't keep her closer to
the So
Cal area.

This means a few things - I will be handling the pre-tournament
planning for 
the Pepperdine College tournament during the summer months, but Sarah
be the contact person once September rolls around.  In addition,
is looking for people who may be interested in filling mine and Kylie's

positions.  I can tell you that Pepperdine is a wonderful place to
work.  We
have an amazingly supportive chair in the division and many faculty
and administrators who are looking to help the program grow and
succeed.  We 
have a great base of returning policy and parliamentary debaters and a
impressive recruiting class that includes policy debaters and
events competitors.  So, if you are looking for a position in the
California area, I encourage you to contact me or Sarah
(ses1001 at psu.edu)
for more information about the positions.  The administration would
like to
fill these positions ASAP, so please don't delay if you're interested!

I wish everyone a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you all
in the
Fall semester!
