KANSAS CITY, MO – The National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) welcomes Jacquie Lamm as the newly elected seventh member of its Eligibility Enforcement Committee (EEC).

“I'm excited to help bring change to the collegiate esports level,” said Lamm. “I believe students can play video games at the collegiate level while also pursuing a degree and we are giving them a chance to do so. We're empowering the students to break out of their shells and really show off their skills.”

Lamm served as an esports advisor to Minnesota State University, Mankato in Mankato, MN, from November 2019 to August 2020. Now serving as head esports coach, Lamm recruits student-athletes, monitors their academic progress, and coordinates team practices. In November of 2020, Lamm was elected to the NACE Eligibility Enforcement Committee.

As a member of the Eligibility Enforcement Committee, Lamm will assist in the reviewing of student and program eligibility for NACE membership and event participation. Consisting of collegiate esports coaches and administrators, the EEC interprets, reviews, and proposes changes to the NACE constitution and bylaws.

"We are excited about Jacqueline's appointment and look forward to seeing her expertise join an already well equipped committee,” said EEC chair Logan Hermes, the head esports coach at Concordia University, St. Paul. “It is great to see another Minnesota coach on the Committee as well, watching esports grow in the state and when facilitating the sometimes arduous process of nationwide eligibility issues it will be good to have a familiar face in our meetings."
