Arne Duncan was just nominated by Obama to be Secretary of Education. As it turns out, Duncan was a basketball player at Harvard University when a good friend of mine – Steve Bzomowski – was an assistant coach there. Steve has coached me in my basketball skills since the 1990s and is himself a fantastic player who played his college ball at Fordham University. He’s also a very talented writer in his own right – I’ve often told him he should be a writer.
Steve has written a fantastic piece on Arne Duncan today on his own blog. Here’s a taste:
I realize that many people reading this blog may not like or have voted for Obama, but I find it encouraging that he has picked someone with this kind of attitude – the “I will not fail” attitude combined with a team attitude. And it is some fine writing from Steve. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
