PISCATAWAY, N.J. (October 4, 2011) – On Wednesday, October 5, Rutgers’ Eric LeGrand along with former RU football letterwinner Kory Kozak will be on hand to speak at the Busch Campus Center Multi-Purpose room at 8 p.m.
Cultural sensitivity and respect are critical to human understanding and compassion. Civility Abilities I & II focus on heroic persons that transcend physical, intellectual and personal challenges that inspire us all. At Rutgers today, and in the nation, almost no one embodies the definition of hero, or exemplifies integrity more than Rutgers’ own Eric LeGrand.
On October 16, 2010, LeGrand sustained injuries during the Rutgers football game against Army that may have left physical challenges, but ignited an incredible spirit as well. The evening will feature an ESPN short film, directed by Kory Kozak, a Rutgers University alumnus. Kozak will share how filming this exhilarating young athlete and his family affected him personally. Having transcended many of his challenges, LeGrand will discuss with the audience his courageous journey returning to classes, announcing games, and future plans in sports broadcasting. Following the discussions, there will be a question and answer session.
