[eDebate] Job Announcement: Assistant Director of Debate - Kansas State University and Good-bye
Mon Feb 18 11:30:51 CST 2008
It is with trepedation that I announce that David Magariel will not be
returning to Kansas State next year. Commuting 4 and 1/2 hours to
work just got a little old. His one liners putting errant debaters
into place and strategic contributions will both sorely be missed.
The Kansas State Debate team would like to publicly thank the Jayhawk
ambassador for all of his hard work and willingness to embrace
Manhattan and our team. We wish him the best of luck..... some
program ought to get this guy working for them, preferably one that
does not frequently debate Kansas State.
Below follows a job announcement. We will begin screening applicants
March 1st. Even if you do not have materials in, if you are
interested in the job, please email jmgreen at ksu.edu. We will make
sure you are considered for the pool of applicants.

BEYOND THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
The debate team receives substantial support directly from the
President. We have a roster of 20 debaters to start next year across
all three divisions and lose only one senior among our top 3 Varsity
teams. We are a diverse squad in appearance, background, argument
choices, and speaking styles. We like our coaching staff to reflect
this. If you like coach a certain set of arguments, we have debaters
for you. We are a squad who seeks both to win and have fun debating.
If you are not interested in either of the two, please don't
apply.Success as a debater is a plus, but a demonstrated commitment to
effective coaching is far more desirable.
For those of you who don't know, Manhattan, KS is a phenomenal place
to live. Housing is cheap. Aggieville with many eating and drinking
establishments offers entertainment across the street from the school.
It is very possible to walk to the school, entertainment, and home.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you have further questions.
