Apparently he took an honorable mention in a 2010 essay competition for the university.
The essay was a critical analysis of an art portrait of a woman.
There is always a certain something about a woman that attracts a man. Thirty-four years ago, it was my wife-to-be’s captivating smile that compelled my securing an introduction and her telephone number, despite the presence of her date at the bar at the time. While “Woman” isn’t smiling, she has an intriguing look of wistfulness that remains timelessly captivating. Every man has seen this look on the face of a woman he loves: grandmother, mother, sister, lover, wife or girlfriend. How a man comes to terms with this look reveals aspects of his character. Perhaps some will find this museum-induced introspection uncomfortable; I find it an emotional delight and a call for compassion.
In other news, I read in a different article that his wife is defending his position against the university.
