Matt McGarrity receives Toastmasters’ Communication and Leadership Award
Senior Lecturer Matt McGarrity was given a Communication and Leadership Award from the District 2 Toastmasters, a nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs. This award is the highest recognition a Toastmasters district can bestow upon a non-Toastmaster.
“Professor McGarrity is a strong advocate for Toastmasters,” said Sandy Malone, District 2 Governor. “He encourages his students to enhance their public speaking skills by joining a Toastmasters club. We think he’s an ideal recipient of our Communication and Leadership Award.”
Toastmasters was founded in 1924, now with more than 292,000 members in 122 countries. District 2 covers all of Seattle and encompasses western Washington from Kent to the Canadian border.
