Posted on Apr 10, 2018
Our next Rotary meeting will be held on Monday April 16 at 12:15 at The Hartford Club in the Yacht Room on the second floor. At this meeting, our guest speaker will be David Benedict, the Director of UConn Athletics. He became the Director of Athletics at the University of Connecticut in March of 2016 and has had a dynamic impact on Husky athletics. UConn enjoyed an outstanding year in 2016-17 under Benedict's leadership as both the women's basketball and field hockey teams advanced to NCAA Final Four competition, while the women's soccer team also played in the NCAA tournament. A native of Tempe, Ariz., Benedict is a 1995 graduate of Southern Utah, where he was a linebacker on the football team. He earned a master's degree from New Mexico Highlands in 1996, where he served as a graduate assistant football coach. Benedict and his wife, the former Lisa Zeis, have twin boys -- Jake and Sam.
