The first group of panelists will include current Bucknell student-athletes as well as Bucknell Hall of Fame alumni Jennifer Yuengling '93, Clifford Melberger '61, M'62, GP'14 and Pat Flannery '80, M'83. The second group will feature local sports commentators Chuck Souders and Tommy Ryan, former Major League Baseball relief pitcher Steve Kline and former NFL fullback Henry Hynoski Sr. 

This talk, as well as all noon lunch presentations of the Coal Collections series, is presented by the Weis Center and the Place Studies program of the Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment.
