New CCHS speech coach takes over
The loss of Bob Brittain last April left some very big shoes to fill.
As far as the speech and debate coaching job, Aaron Dicker of Fort Wayne has been hired to pick up the mantle.
A graduate of DePauw University, Dicker was a former competitor of the CCHS team when he attended South Side High School and remembered Brittain as a very “personable person.”
Dicker continued with speech and debate in his post-secondary career and saw Brittain at the national forensics meets, as well.
Dicker says Brittain’s shoes will be impossible to fill, but he will carry on the team Brittain helped create.
For the foreseeable future, Dicker admits he has no idea what his plans will be, but does intend to stay at Columbia City as speech and debate coach for at least a couple of years, “to see if I want to be a coach.”
