Sullivan Honored for Work with Tennessee Speech and Debate Society

Holly Sullivan Honored for Work with Tennessee Speech and Debate SocietyThe Center for Student Engagement hosted a student organization advisor appreciation breakfast to recognize and celebrate the hard work and dedication of student organization advisors. Holly Jackson-Sullivan, director of development for the College of Arts and Sciences, received an award for Commitment to Campus and Community Engagement for her work with the Tennessee Speech and Debate Society.

Her nominator wrote: “Holly Sullivan has not only done an incredible amount of work to ensure that our members have the best experience possible with the TN Speech and Debate Society, but she has also gone above and beyond at reaching out to alumni, members of the campus community, and members of the greater Knoxville community. Every year, she puts on an Alumni Clinic in which members of the organization can connect with alumni and learn from their experiences. Since we are a student-run team, Holly is the closest thing we have to a coach. We think of her as the debate team “mom.” She has even connected with other coaches across the state to figure out how our debate team can function better and more smoothly.”

Congratulations Holly on your well-deserved award!
