Remembering Brett Lerner

By Rich Martin

The front page of today’s Daily Illini is dedicated to the memory of Brett Lerner, a junior in Broadcast Journalism who was killed Friday evening in an automobile accident while on a sports assignment. His classmates, teachers, advisers and friends all describe him as a remarkable young man – someone who was smart, hardworking and a pleasure to be around. The Department of Journalism and the College of Media were fortunate to count him as one of our students. He will be missed.
