Matt Jackson is the current President of PACE.


High school

In high school, Matt Jackson went to Georgetown Day School; during his senior year there, he was the top scorer at all ten regular-season tournaments he played, as well as the 2010 NSC; he took the 2nd place All-Star spot at the 2010 HSNCT.


Jackson played for Yale University in the first half of the 2010s. His undergraduate career featured numerous key matches against UVA's Matt Bollinger as part of the Jackson-Bollinger rivalry. First under the tutelage of John Lawrence and then as captain, Matt helped lead teams which won the 2011 DII ICT, 2011 ACF Nationals, 2012 ACF Nationals, and 2013 ICT, came in second at 2013 ACF Nationals, the 2014 ICT, and 2014 ACF Nationals, and placed third at the 2012 ICT. His editorship of BHSAT in 2011, and head editorship of that tournament, for three years thereafter, was pivotal in improving the standards of the tournament's writing quality and establishing mirrors nationwide.


Matt became a PACE member in the summer of 2012. Before becoming President, he served as its Vice President of Outreach from the spring of 2013 until the summer of 2014, working primarily on recruiting teams for the expanded NSC fields of those competition years.
