Sports staff receives admiration for work

This item originally appeared in the February 17, 2005 issue of The Tech Talk.

Dear Editor:

I just wanted to drop a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed reading the story in today's Tech Talk about the Lady Techsters recent trip to Boise and El Paso written by Josh Milton.

Obviously, any positive stories about this program and any Tech program I enjoy; however, I think Josh did an excellent job of describing the unity on this year's team and to a point, the every day demands on these young ladies. No one truly understands the rigors of the travel in this league on your student-athletes.

I'm proud. Josh and Kevin both did an outstanding job of interacting with our players, coaches and support staff on this trip (and that is not always an easy thing to do).

The girls were a little uncertain of them at first (I think Kevin almost got killed the very first morning taking some of those pics of them sleeping in the airport, but the players soon warmed up to both of them).

By the end of the trip, you would have thought they were just part of our family. Kevin's pictures were great. He is a talented photographer.

Sincerely,

Malcolm Butler

Association upset with no coverage of event

This item originally appeared in the February 17, 2005 issue of The Tech Talk.

Dear Editor:

I write to you on behalf of the International Student Community at Tech.

We think it is very sad to see that there was absolutely no coverage on the largest and most important event the ISA puts on every year.

With over 500 tickets sold and a total attendance of over 600 people, we believe it was worth a place in this week's issue of The Tech Talk especially since there was room for old news topics such as parking problems.

All members of the ISA board have been confronted by upset International students that have put a lot of their free time over the last months into this production; and the ISA board agrees with their disappointment.

The goal of the ISA is to bring International students and Americans closer together. We were hoping to be supported yet in our efforts we feel ignored.

With great concern and hope for better future relations,

Sincerely,

Sascha Poeschl

President, ISA
