Bogran? Borgan? Brogan?

Bogran? Borgan? Brogan?

This month we are featuring 2 judges: Brogan King and Arick Dickerman. First up, we have Brogan, who is celebrating their 5 year anniversary with their RC, EDB:

“There is not a world in which I move to Richmond, Virginia” -Brogan King, 2015

When I met Brogan she was living in Boston and quickly becoming an asset on the Grand Prix circuit. Since moving to Richmond she has taken point with judge onboarding in the Mid-Atlantic, helped improve our region’s review culture, and has an incredible knack for helping helping judges deliver feedback to their peers. (I have been very lucky to have an in-region diplomacy filter!) Brogan is also bringing her style and sense of humor to the Judge Program at large; you can hear her every other week keeping it fun as the most recent addition to JudgeCast. Brogan cares about people and as long as she is a part of our community she’s going to keep being a positive force in whatever region she calls home.



Next up, we have Arick, who is celebrating 10 years as a judge. Carlos, his RC, put together this:

I met Arick when he was still in high school. A young, energetic person that was very excited about judging in Costa Rica, and I had the pleasure of welcoming him to the judge family after testing him for L1. Little did I know that he’d become of the most traveled and experienced judges in Central America, and that he’d keep on growing the judge community in the area. Arick has been very active in judge conferences, presenting seminars, helping to organize them, or cooking for a whole weekend, and he was also instrumental in helping another person from Costa Rica to grow up as a judge: David Jimenez, who in turn undertook an ambitious project that ended up seeing several new L1 and L2 judges in the Hispanic America Region.

David wanted to join me in congratulating Arick with his own words:
“Arick was always been extraordinary. In his 10 years in his program, there are way too many stories that can be shared about his exploits. But actually, they all pale in comparison nexto the kind of person that Arick is: someone to puts a lot of effort into whatever he’s doing, a great mentor, a partner and a friend. When Arick is nearby, you can feel the difference, as the atmosphere is always more jovial and friendly, and no matter what he’s doing, he’ll always shine in some way. Congratulations for your 10 years in the judge program, Arick!”

Happy anniversary to all of you!  We look forward to many more years of judging from you all.
