Lehigh University presentation

From Moderator:

Letter to the Brown and White, Lehigh

Tried sending this through web site but the verification clicker is off. You might check it. Thanks

I wanted to thank the B & W for its great coverage and the students and Greek Affairs staff at Lehigh
University for its amazing warm welcome when I appeared at campus. You and Geoff Baird might want to make
a short clarification on the online page, however. As I said in my talk, the baseball article I wrote was done as a participatory journalist, not
as a roster player; I’ve also on magazine assignments done other sports such as rodeo but always for
published magazine articles. See that article here for clarification only: hanknuwer.com/noruns

Thanks for clearing that up, Editor. Best wishes for a great school year. And thanks to all at Lafayette for a great experience. This is my second time to
speak at Lehigh. Both times I came away thinking what a classy school I just visited–and was grateful for its dedication to keeping students safe.
