CNN NewsNight to Feature Matt Kelley

Dec. 20, 2002

Matt Kelley, Brown University Class of 2002 and member of the Brown Men's Lacrosse program, will be featured in a documentary on CNN for his involvement in Teach for America.

Kelley, a midfielder and co-captain of the men's lacrosse team, is taking part in Teach for America after accepting the position earlier this year in the rural Mississippi Delta region. The CNN NewsNight documentary will feature four young teachers and their experiences during the first months of the program. Kelley is a 2002 recipient of "The Coaches' Award," given each year by the coaching staff to the Brown Men's Lacrosse player who best represents the spirit of Brown Lacrosse. Considered a tremendous leader on and off the field, he helped lead the Bears to a 2nd place Ivy League finish in 2002.

The CNN documentary will air on December 25 and January 1 at 10pm EST (check local listings for further details).
