Fourth Year Profile
UVA Today shares this profile of #UVABase senior pitcher Chesdin Harrington, who states “we have an opportunity and a responsibility to be good role models for kids and society generally.” Harrington won two honors at last night’s Hoos Choice awards that recognized his dedication to that principle, the Ernest H Ern Jr. Award and the Wahoowa Award.
A Bet’s a Bet
Leading up to last month’s Final Four, the local chambers of commerce for the four teams involved agreed to a friendly bet. When Virginia beat Texas Tech in the NCAA title game, the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce won that bet winning a cooler full of steaks from the meat science program at Texas Tech. Charlottesville Chamber president Elizabeth Cromwell presented them as a surprise gift for UVA Director of Event Management Mike Doto for his work behind the scenes during the Cavaliers’ postseason run. CBS19 has the story here.
Hoos Being Honored
Congratulations to senior associate director of athletics for programs/senior woman administrator Jane Miller who was honored by the Z Society with the Pale Z Award.
