From an NFL player to a Cabrini Connections' fan!

The Cabrini Connections' Art Club received a visitor yesterday by a unique 'fan!' During the Art Club's session yesterday Mr. Kurt Kittner stopped by to meet the volunteers and students in the club and to get a better understanding of what all takes place in Art Club.
Kurt Kittner is a current University of Illinois legendary athlete and a former NFL quarterback. Mr. Kittner was the signal caller for several NFL teams during his career and at the quarterback position was one of the true leaders of the teams in which he played for.

Following Kurt's career as a player, Kurt Kitterner has changed roles and has become a fan...of Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection. Kurt Kittner recently joined the Cabrini Connections Board of Directors, participated in Annual Jimmy Biggs Memorial Cabrini Connections Golf Benefit this year, and as mentioned early took a break for a Board meeting to pay a visit to the Cabrini Connections' Art Club. While visiting the participants in the Art Club, Kurt interacted with the students and volunteers, observed the students working on their masterpieces, took pictures, and even offered to assist with obtaining needed materials.

Kurt the entire Cabrini Connections' Team would like to thank you for setting an example of how to "Give Back" and we all truly appreciate what you do for the Cabrini Connections' program as a whole!
