Each year, Kirvin Doak hosts a friendly competition during March Madness to see who can fill out the best bracket. The entire staff and KDC clients are invited to participate and enjoy the excitement of the NCAA Basketball Tournament.

Jim Valvano, NC State


 I have had the honor of being co-commissioner of the league for the past  three years with Terri Maruca, who is also a fellow Nittany Lion alum here at KDC. While it is always devastating to my ego to get beaten by pretty much everyone in the office (even after claiming to have superior basketball knowledge), it is still one of my favorite office events each year. This year, win or lose, I will enjoy the fact that my alma mater Penn State gets to play in the “Big Dance” for the first time in 10 years. Yes, that’s two Penn State references in a three sentence span. Did I mention it’s their first visit to the NCAA Tournament in 10 years?!

 As the weather gets warmer in Vegas, March Madness always seems to be the unofficial start of summer/pool season each year. There’s nothing better than watching a NCAA Tournament game outside with a nice cold beer while all your East Coast friends are still complaining about snow! Anyway, this year’s tournament should be a fun ride and we can’t wait to watch it all unfold here at Kirvin Doak Communications. Be sure to check back after the tournament to see who wins our office competition! One last time for my team: We Are…Penn State!
