It has taken me some time to get back to your "form" email. I
have been hoping that things would have changed. I hoped you would
have had a change of heart and renewed Coach John Dzik's contract.
It seems as of this date you have not.
I have heard that you have only gotten responses from a few
"angry" alumni. Why won't you answer the questions of the alumni?
Why do you sit on your perch and disregard the alumni? Dr. Iadarola,
you and your staff are not preaching the values of loyalty and fair
play that Mother Ursula would have wanted. You talk about values yet
yours are in question. The Cabrini Community does deserve answers.
This is not a business decision you are making. You and your staff
have something personal against John Dzik. You can deny it with all
consultants and your spin control. But you are WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.
John Dzik deserves to go out on his own. Has he done something so
reprehensible that he should be terminated? Is it that he doesn't
agree with you? What is it? Please explain.
Your own core values state:
Community calls for: common mission ethical responsibility a
sense of belonging dialogue in decision making enthusiasm for the
enterprise participation in the celebration of our values and
traditions The Cabrini College community seeks to maintain an
environment of receptivity and hospitality for all and create union
while nurturing individual gifts and talents.
You have gone against your core values that the college has put
in place. You must make the right decision and that is to keep John
Dzik. He's been there longer than you. He has done more good for
Cabrini than you have. John Dzik will be remembered for many things.
You will be known for ONE. THAT YOU FIRED JOHN DZIK!
I have a heavy heart. I love Cabrini. I love the campus. But I
can't in good conscious support a college that would do this to a
man such as John Dzik. Do this to its students and alumni. Do this
to the community.
So is with deepest regrets that I will no longer support the
college. Not one dime. I won't tell any student to go there. Not one
High School student, not one graduate student, no one. I will
actually encourage them not to go. As long as you are there, those
of your staff that support your decision are there and the board
that supports it is still there I WILL NEVER GIVE THE COLLEGE
ANOTHER PENNY. Please take me off your mailing list. Do not send me
anymore correspondence. Until you do what is right that is: Give
John Dzik the respect he deserves. Give him a new contract and
apologize for your heinous decision.
Also, do not send me a form e-mail back. If you don't have the
intestinal fortitude to send it back yourself. Don't bother.
You know Coach has given a lot to his students and players alike.
Maybe you guys should be mentored by him you might learn something
about loyalty and commitment!!!
