Our Speaker:  Reagan Rossi, Director of Athletics, College of Idaho
Reagan started by recognizing Ken Howell, Andy Erstad, & Marcia Wing for their support at College of Idaho.
Reagan has been with C of I since 2001, which she considers the opportunity of a lifetime.  Several of the Yotes' athletic programs are nationally ranked.  
  • Cross-country teams are competing in the NAIA tournament in Vancouver
  • Men's basketball is ranked #3
  • Football is ranked #6
  • Men's & women's swimming are ranked 6 & 8 respectively
The school boasts 60 NAIA scholar athletes, which is among the top in the country.  They also have 120 conference scholars.  Reagan mentioned Caldwell's tremendous support of the Yotes.  Businesses have "Go Purple" Fridays!
