Media Matters

The Morning Call, the Express-Times and WFMZ-TV (Ch. 69) all covered Moravian’s memorial service for the astronauts of the space shuttle Columbia. Channel 69 featured the service on its 5:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., and 10:00 p.m. news February 4; the newspapers ran photos and stories February 5. Participants included chaplains David Bennett ’88 (M.Div.) and Wayne Killian, as well as students Kyle Borowski ’06, Warrington; Darline Danda ’03, Bethlehem; Sarah Dreydoppel ’03, Nazareth; Philip Lythcott, Guyana, Seminary; and Bindesh Shrestha ’03, Nepal; and Joanne Dangelmajer, associate professor of French.

An interview with the students, making use of their slide presentation, was aired on Channel 69 during the 11:00 p.m. news February 13—in Spanish, yet.
