Speed skater Emery Lehman will be competing at the 2014 Winter Olympics next month (he had the second-fastest time at the qualifying trials).  He leaves for Sochi, Russia, this weekend, and we are planning a short but sweet send-off Friday, Jan. 17, from 7:30 – 7:45 a.m. in the Student Center.

Emery, his family, and student groups will be gathering in the decked-out Student Center around 7:30 a.m. for an official send-off at 7:45 a.m. Students, faculty, and staff will be present in the Student Center to wish Emery good luck.

This event is not open to the public.
