Chad Epps (1972-2020) was an inspiring educator, a passionate mentor, an engaged collaborator and a beloved friend. To his learners, he was a knowledgeable mentor and guide, who was driven to ensure that his learners were comfortable, heard and validated. He had an uncanny ability to simplify complex topics to make them more approachable for his learners. To his fellow instructors, Chad was an amazing partner and friend. He was always present to support and elevate his team to make them the best that they could be. The Debriefing Academy team was lucky to have him as a valued collaborator and team member.
We are proud to announce the Chad Epps Memorial Bursary in memory of our colleague and friend, Chad Epps. Chad strongly believed in the need to train and mentor the next generation of educators, independent of their background or profession. He took great interest in the professional development of learners at all levels. The Chad Epps Memorial Bursary celebrates Chad’s legacy by offering 4 spots per year for learners to attend a Debriefing Academy course with free tuition. We hope this Bursary allows Chad’s spirit to live on with The Debriefing Academy and future Academy Alumni.
