Exeter’s Academic Administrator to be an Olympic Games Maker
Congratulations to Joan Himpson, Exeter’s Academic Administrator, who has been appointed as a specialist Games Maker at the London Olympics and Paralympics in 2012.
Games Makers are the volunteers who facilitate the smooth running of the Games. Joan will be assisting with the basketball, and as a fan of the sport she is delighted. “My reaction to being accepted was one of delight to be one of a fairly select group of people who will be involved with both the Olympics and the Paralympics,” she said.
In her spare time Joan officiates at basketball matches, and she is hoping that she may be asked to perform one of the technical roles in 2012, such as time or score keeping. She will find out towards the end of this year, and we wish her luck.
