Olympic torch relay rests on campus

     Rain didn't dampen the enthusiasm of spectators who greeted
torch bearer Antonio "Tony" Bowe on June 19 as he carried the
Olympic Torch in Newark on its way to the Atlanta Summer Games,
which were held in July. Robinson Hall was selected as the lunch
location for runners and escorts, and a brief ceremoney there
included remarks by President David P. Roselle and Newark Mayor
Ron Gardner.
     A Special Olympics athlete who competes in power lifting and
the 1994 Delaware Special Olympics athlete of the year, Bowe won
three gold medals at the 1995 Special Olympics World Games.
