I made it into the Caller Times (our local paper)!
Scroll pretty much to the last 3 paragraphs...so maybe I'm not as big of a deal as I'd like to be! Here is the original press release (with way more information) from our marketing and communications department that ran in our student paper:
This has been my work life for the last 6 months or so...getting this program proposed and accepted by our curriculum committee. We already have 45 students who have declared this emphasis as their major - which means my days of teaching freshman and sophomore classes are dwindling fast! (yay!) This will make my teaching load to be strictly sport psychology classes with one sport sociology class in the summers. This makes me happy!
