Susan Nelson asked for a clarification of the status of Holiday Magic for Marcus. Some of the student-athletes had expressed concern that the program would need to be canceled. Brian Faison and Daniella Irle stated that was not the case. However stricter procedures will need to be followed to track donations, expenditures and distribution. This is necessary to protect the student-athletes involved and the integrity of the program.
