We are excited to announce the 2019 Commencement speaker, Dr. Lee Coppock. Dr. Coppock is Professor of Economics and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Economics at the University of Virginia.
He has received several teaching awards, including the 2017 Distinguished Teaching Award from the Southern Economics Association and the 2018 UVA Alumni Distinguished Professor Award. He has co-written a highly-acclaimed and widely-used Principles of Economics textbook.
Prior to teaching at UVA, Dr. Coppock earned his Ph.D. at George Mason University and then taught for nine years at Hillsdale College. Along with Krista, his wife of 30 years, he has four children: Bethany, Lee III, Kara, and Jackson. Bethany graduated from the Covenant School in the Class of 2009, Lee III with the Class of 2011, and Jackson is currently finishing eighth grade here at The Covenant School.
We look forward to what he has to share at Commencement on May 25.
