Because the rest of the dept. may not get their share, debate may well
have openings for mor graduate assistant coaches for next year.
Brad Hall, Casey Harrigan and Brian DeLong
This email reminded me of a small way in which college directors could help
the high school community. This weekend many of your students/assistant
coaches will be judging at the TOC and should be conflicted from judging those
students who will be attending your school next year or who are being recruited
by your school.
If you could please send your students/assistant coaches that plan to judge
at the TOC a list of those students who have committed to attend your
institution and/or you have been recruiting to attend your institution.
This is necessary because, to be honest, many of us in the high school
community can't/don't keep track of who all the graduate assistants and debaters
at each program are.
For example, I have a student who will be attending Wake next year and while
I knew that we should constrain Brad and Casey I didn't know Brian was at
Wake. It is also very possible that Brian doesn't even know my student. That's
not a problem until Round 5 when he judges us and in casual conversation it
comes up that they will both be at Wake next year.
I'd prefer to avoid even the hint of a conflict when my students are
debating and I'm sure most of my colleagues would also. So please give us a hand.
