Bo Schemblechler, RIP.
When I was a clueless undergrad, I didn't understand what the big deal was about Bo.
Now, with some appreciation for how difficult is to make a difference in this world, and how much energy it takes, the passing of Bo Schembechler was a sad moment. This man embodied the great things about the university: the commitment to excellence and service. So many stories have now been told about the remarkable energy of this man and his day by day ability to affirm the dignity and value of other human beings. In the end, his great heart just gave out. Thanks, Bo - you were a true champion.
