Dear Cabrini Administration,
After attempting on multiple occasions to communicate with Dr.
Iadarola concerning Coach John Dzikís unceremonious and untimely
dismissal, I now recognize that my questions will go unanswered. I
painfully realize that Cabrini has become an organization led by a
small group of individuals that are bigger that the institution
itself. There is seemingly no accountability to a Board, or to a
student body. The alumni are not considered a priority, and
certainly are struggling to hold you accountable for these
I had sought answers. Our affection and affinity for Cabrini is
strong. As alumni, we wish to feel as if we are a part of our
college. We certainly have each played a part in the esteemed
history of the school. My name is engraved throughout campus. You
have driven a wedge between the alumni and our deep feelings for our
Coach Dzik has obviously touched more lives than the three of you
administrators combined. I donít see anyone holding rallyís for you.
As we see our distinguished school getting negative publicity in
print, or on television, it is as if someone is criticizing one of
my children. NOT ONCE HAS AN ADMINISTRATOR GONE ON CAMERA, or SPOKEN
WITH A NEWSPAPER to provide the explanation the we have sought
Are you above it all? Do you care what we feel? Do you care about
our perceptions of Cabrini? Or is it all about your vision?
You have affected many lives, yet you remain in your vacuum,
ignoring our constant requests for more information.
You are tarnishing the image that we have helped to create.
Since you have left me no choice, I sadly request for you
to remove BOTH me, and my wife Patricia (Keough) Butera (1990) from
any college mailing lists. We wish NOT to participate in any wine
tastings, or pledge drives. I will not participate in any alumni
events NOR camps for our children. We will no longer attend ANY
athletic events, and certainly will never again see the Dixon
Most painfully, my three (soon to be four) children will never
have the chance to experience the wonderful place that I called home
for four years. You have underestimated our collective resolve. You
will have to move forward without us. I hold a grudge like an
elephant. Not just Trish and I. ALL OF US. And it's gonna cost
