"Dean of Fun" Snowshoe Mag's Person of the Year
Snowshoe Magazine recognized Athletic Director Jim Tucker for his contributions to the sport by awarding him the 2014 Cindy Brochman Memorial Person of the Year Award.
“Jim Tucker is likely the number one most important figure in the sport, though his modesty would keep him from agreeing to such a comment,” said Phillip Smith, senior editor at Snowshoe Magazine, in an article on the magazine's website.
Tucker - also known as the "Dean of Fun" - coaches the college's snowshoe team, the Striders. Ten Paul Smith's athletes have been crowned National Snowshoe Racing Champions under his watch.
