Jessica Kong, a Lecturer in Professional Accounting, served as the Honorary Coach for the EWU Men’s Basketball team during their home game vs. UC Davis, Saturday, December 17.  Assistant Coach Mark Darnall writes, “We host an “Honorary Coach” during our home games throughout the season with different faculty and staff across campus. Our “Honorary Coach” program gives select faculty and staff across campus the insight in the life of what our student-athletes go through on a game day!”  Three of Jessica’s ACCT 251 students, Ethan Price, Cedric Coward, and Casey Jones (shown above), suggested she be invited to serve as an Honorary Coach.

As part of her honorary status, Jessica enjoyed a pregame team meal, received a signed basketball, had a picture taken at center court prior to tip-off, and enjoyed special 6th Man Club baseline seating with her family.  Jessica writes, “It was a wonderful experience! I’m proud to be an instructor at EWU!”.

Thank you to the Men’s Basketball Team and EWU Athletics. Go Eags!
