It is with deep sadness that Georgia Odyssey of the Mind announces the passing of long time Georgia Odyssey of the Mind supporter, judge, world finals judge, coach, and State Problem Captain Ed Brown. Ed’s enthusiasm, knowledge, and “whatever it takes” attitude for Georgia’s kids will be greatly missed. Georgia Odyssey of the Mind is a better program because of Ed and he will be dearly missed. Thank you Ed for all that you have given so many of us.

Georgia Odyssey lost an extraordinarily creative and caring member yesterday. Jeanne Fessenden coached and mentored countless young lives throughout the state of Georgia for many decades. She had a role in starting the Odyssey of the Mind program in Georgia, served many different positions on the Board of Directors, and eventually became the State Association Director. Jeanne will be deeply missed by the countless OMERs she inspired.
Donations may be made in Jeanne’s memory to Georgia Odyssey’s newly created Fessenden “Pay it Forward” Fund at the request of the family. Inspired by the Fessenden’s drive to provide every student the opportunity to experience the benefits of Odyssey of the Mind, the Fessenden “Pay it Forward” Fund will be utilized for two key purposes team member recognition and under served team support.
Donors to the Fessenden “Pay it Forward” Fund will be listed on the website.
Donations may be mailed to:
Georgia Odyssey of the Mind
1216 W. Lakeshore Dr.

Coaches and competitors,
There is still space available to join our group of experienced volunteers for some spontaneous practice. This is a great opportunity to gain exposure to competition ready problems and judges. The problems will challenge all age groups and each problem has a very different set of challenges to solve it.
Spontaneous is a large scoring component and teams that regularly practice solving problems tend to do much better on competition day. We offer these workshops to help coaches and teams prepare for competition day and the challenges that are ahead of them.
