Reade Seligmann Humanitarian Award honoree

Last Friday Reade Seligmann, one of three innocent Duke students victimized in a frame-up attempt led by the now disbarred former Durham DA Mike Nifong, was honored by the Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association at a luncheon in Baltimore.

Seligmann received the IMLCA’s inaugural Boston Market Humanitarian Award which recognizes “student-athletes for their strategies and efforts in addressing community needs with campus-based efforts.”

You can read more at this Liestoppers post. Also, this Lacrosse Magazine page has a nice color photo of Seligmann on the field for Brown.

Congratulations to Reade Seligmann who transferred from Duke to Brown after NC attorney general Roy Cooper declared him and the two other students innocent of all charges brought by Nifong, whom Cooper called “a rogue prosecutor.”
