John Dzik is the only reason I came to Cabrini and is one of the main reasons I
remain associated with the college. He instilled a sense of pride and
dedication in me that carries on to this day.
I really didn't know where I was headed when I came to Cabrini, but thanks to
Coach Dzik, I am now a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army. I am now entering
my 19th year of service to your nation, so I know about the commitment the
coach has made to Cabrini College.
As a leader of soldiers I am well aware of the impact coach Dzik's had on my
life and many more you men (especially) and women throughout his career.
Traveling around the country and the world, he has somehow kept me in touch
with the school and alumni through the events he's coordinated throughout the
years. If not renewing the coach's contract is the treatment he receives from
the institution following all these years of dedicated service I'm not sure my
association with the school with continue.
Loyalty is one of the values that is the cornerstone to good order and
discipline. Measuring Coach Dzik's worth in wins/losses versus the totality of
his efforts in changing lives and attitudes around the community would be a
I urge you to reconsider and to bring him back on campus. I am taking leave from
the military to come up to the school next weekend to show my support. I owe
him alot and I'm a loyal supporter.
