What a lovely tribute! Some of my favorite debate memories are our summers at Northwestern. I felt so fortunate to get to teach with you. Hugs to you and all the Wake folks today.

I cannot believe it has been 10 years. So many great memories of Ross. Loved sitting in the squad room talking strategy with him while he smoked like a chimney. Loved the van rides. Loved how excited he was when Adrienne Brovero and I won the Clay. Ross and all the other great debate coaches have an enduring impact on the lives of so many folks. Thanks to ALL the debate coaches who work so hard to make the activity so great.

I remember one car ride with Ross back in college where I made a snide comment about another debater and he angrily said ‘why would you say that??’ That rebuke has stuck with me for a long time. He taught me a lot about being thoughtful to others.

I heard them say British Open on tv this morning and my heart hurt....that was such a sad summer in the offices at Wake...he definitely added something to the lives of everyone he came in contact with, in person or digitally.

I choose to see the Ross I got to know later as the person he was always struggling to be, and I use that as fuel for my own struggles to be better.

Joe Bellon nicely said. Even when Ross was irritated or thought your arguments were total bull, he was always speaking as a teacher to make things better the next go-around. Great gift
