Rock Our World! TC's Tom Rock and Partner Compete in The Amazing Race
By Diane Dobry
TC's Director of Admissions Tom Rock and his partner Terry Cosentino are one team among 12 in The Amazing Race 10, the tenth edition of the CBS reality show, The Amazing Race that airs as part of CBS's fall season on Sunday nights at 8 p.m.
"I think it's amazing that Tom's doing the Amazing Race. He runs marathons, travels the world for recruitment and is a comic on the side," said Debbie Lesperance, who has worked in the Office of Admissions for Rock for the last three years. "Tom's energy will keep the show interesting. He has a way of making the best of a situation or leaves you thinking -'What just happened?'"
Associate Dean Don Martin, who was thrilled about Rock's participation, added, "What a great opportunity to see the world, showcase his commitment to physical fitness, and indirectly, represent TC! I'm hoping Tom and his race partner win the gold!!!" http://www.tc.columbia.edu/news/article.htm?id=5808
