Story on Widener President for a Day Program Published in Newspapers Coast-to-CoastApril 28, 2010
An Associated Press feature story on Widener’s annual President for a Day in which Doug Shultz, a senior environmental science major, switched places with President James T. Harris III, is running in newspapers nationwide, including The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, and The San Diego Union-Tribune. Many other newspapers and TV stations also picked up the story.
The story, by AP’s Kathy Matheson, starts this way: Widener University President James T. Harris III had only one question before hopping on a mini-motorbike to deliver newspapers across campus: “Where’s the brake?”
For the rest of the story, read it online. The Washington Post version also includes a great photo slide show. And John Martins in our University Relations Department produced a video about the President for a Day program on Widener’s YouTube channel.
