News and Events Details
For the second time in his career, Jeff Isaacson, Class of 2012 represented the United States of America as an Olympic curler. The UW-Superior alumnus also competed at the Vancouver Winter Olympic games.
The chance to represent one's country is an honor. "I think it was even more special to get to go to second Olympics. For me, it really shows the hard work and sacrifices I have put into the game. It takes an incredible amount of time and energy to get to that point," said Isaacson.
For the Iron Range native, the faculty at UW-Superior made the difference for him as he pursued his master's degree in educational administration. "I had most of my classes with Terri Kronzer. I enjoyed her classes and hearing her stories- especially with her law background and school experiences. She helped guide me through the program and keep me on track."
Kronzer wasn't the only one to make an impact on this world-class athlete. "I was happy to have my last class with Mary Lee-Nichols," said the two-time Olympian. "Mary is such a positive, supportive, and down-to-earth person. I've never experienced anyone who was willing to take so much time for each of her students. She cares deeply about what she does and is a fantastic role model for anyone going into the field of education."
Lee-Nichols watched the Olympics with even more focus with a former student competing. "He really is a remarkable person, and we can be really proud of him. He was sending great emails to Educational Leadership faculty while in Sochi - it has been fun to follow his experiences!"
