Morning Roar – March 17, 2023

Written by on March 17, 2023

On St. Patrick’s Day 2023, it was a Morning Roar to remember!

Chris, Allison, David & Dom honored Deena Leh, our beloved WXVU staff advisor and Villanova’s Assistant Director of Media Programs. It was Deena’s last day at Villanova, as she moves on to a wonderful opportunity in multimedia at the Community College of Philadelphia.

Deena and the crew shared stories and reminisced on all of the amazing things WXVU has accomplished under Deena’s leadership! Then, there was not a dry eye in the studio, as a collage of gratitude played from some of Deena’s former media students (Deena advised WXVU, VTV, the Villanovan, the Belle Air Yearbook, and Tech Crew).

If that wasn’t all, the amazing Derek Wilson of the band Archpalatine made an in-studio appearance and performed a tribute song for Deena! It was spectacular. Derek sang at multiple Villanova home basketball games this season, performing an outstanding rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing”. He’ll be doing so to open up the women’s NCAA Tournament action at the Finneran Pavilion on Saturday!

We also had plenty of St. Patrick’s Day content, talked about what you wish you would have known when you were in grade school and middle school, and had an Irish trivia round for our mind bender. David struck back!

Don’t miss this Morning Roar – thank you to all of Deena’s former media students for sending in their loving voice memos, thank you to Derek, and THANK YOU DEENA!
