Legendary College Basketball analyst Dick Vitale spoke in Columbus, Ohio earlier this month as the featured speaker for St. Charles Preparatory School’s scholarship fundraiser. The former coach made two public appearances at the school, first which happened at 12:00 p.m. with the student body and “An Evening with Dick Vitale” was followed afterwards and hosted by Peggy and Bob Walter. Thankfully, Vitale helped the school raise over $600,000 which will directly support their Student Tuition Assistance program.
The Passaic, New Jersey native got his first job as a coach at a grade school in New Jersey in the 1950s’, and it wasn’t until 1971 that he became the assistant coach for Rutgers University. After two years of that, he landed a position coaching the Detroit Tigers for four years and eventually went on to get a job with the Detroit Pistons. In 2008 he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as well as the College Basketball Hall of Fame, and has since taken on the role of a broadcaster for ESPN.
Vitale spoke earlier this month on September 8th to help raise money for the Student Tuition Assistance program at St. Charles Preparatory School, and it was a great turnout. The student body and other audience members were thrilled to have the former coach on campus, and he had a great message in his speech.
