    Hello Mr. Kennedy,

    This is Margarita Novack, I am currently writing an article for the “Newspaper weekly,” for Gustavus Adolphus on Eric Butoric. I understand that Mr. Wilkinsion coached Mr. Butoric during his years at Gustavus. I was hoping to ask him some questions, is there any way that I can communicate with him or if you can? Either way I would truly appreciate it, Thank you so much for your time!
