by Ron Eubank,
I've seen a coupla singing applicants posted so please join me in
congratulating Jim Ryan who has been accepted into the Contest
Administrator development program.
Just to refresh your memory
about the journey, when Glen Hipple, Denny Gore and Jim are accepted
they are officially termed "applicants" while they take some written
tests and some other stuff. If they then get invited to Candidate
School later this summer and then pass those tests, they are labeled
"candidates" and can practice at official contests.
