Pavlo’s spirit lives on

In Middlebury, Pavlo wanted to continue the wrestling training, but there was no wrestling club in the college. So he joined the rugby team, and decided to organize the wrestling club. In spring semester he started to gather interested students and writing letters to college authorities, trying to persuade them that such club be founded at Middlebury. “Pavlo’s efforts at establishing a wrestling club at Middlebury were an illustration of quiet determination,” as former Dean of Cook Commons Matthew Carluzzo recalls. Unfortunately, by summer, the club was yet not established. Now, other students are continuing the work that Pavlo started. Here is the link to the article about the progress in creating the wrestling club: Pavlo’s spirit lives on
