My name is Katelyn Penrose. I am a freshman here at Cabrini and I have been touched by Mr. Dzik. In the beginning of the year, I was a transfer student from Millersville University. When I came to Cabrini, I was very excited and anxious to play field hockey and lacrosse. However, when I got here, it took about a week to get my name in the clear due to the fact that I was going from a division two school to three. I felt that the athletic staff was very slow to trying to get this information cleared up. My coach, Jackie, went up to Mr. Dzik and asked him if I would be able to play field hockey in the fall and lacrosse in the spring. Mr. Dzik came up to me and told me that I would be cleared then went to the Vice Athletic Director and told him to get a move on clearing me. I felt that was such a nice gesture since I was a freshmen that he did not even know. He went out of his way to make sure that I would be cleared to play. If it was not for him, then I may have not been able to play. Mr. Dzik is a wonderful man that has done so many things for the athletic program here at Cabrini for the past 25 years and now the freshmen class will not be able to have that chance to have him a part of our college experience. Please do no let us suffer by not having him here at Cabrini College. Think about the students, athletes, alumni, faculty, staff and students. Please keep John Dzik.

Thank you for your time,

Katelyn Penrose
