Not your average substitute teacher, rocker Marilyn Manson led discussion in Rob Main’s “Art and Society” class for 50 minutes in Barton Hall on Nov. 22.
The surprise visit was filmed by a crew from mtvU, MTV’s college network, for the latest episode of its “Stand In” series.
“The students were shocked,” Main said. “They were really impressed by Manson’s honest, down-to-earth attitude about art.”
The show will premiere on mtvU (channel 41 on the campus cable system) on Dec. 6 at noon and then repeat throughout the week.

Harmelin CEO receives Lew Klein Award

The School of Communications and Theater presented the 2004 Lew Klein Alumni in the Media Awards on Nov. 10. The ceremony was hosted by the voice of the Philadelphia Eagles Merrill Reese, currently in his 28th season as the team’s play-by-play announcer.

Named in honor of Lew Klein (right), founder and president of the National Association of Television Program Executives Education Board and an adjunct professor at Temple for more than five decades, the Alumni in the Media Awards pay tribute to the accomplishments of alumni who have excelled in the media in their chosen fields.

The Lew Klein Excellence in the Media Award, which is presented to a distinguished member of the media outside of the Temple alumni community whose outstanding achievements and commitment to service brings honor to his or her profession, was presented to Joanne Harmelin (center), founder and chief executive officer of Harmelin Media, the nation’s sixth-largest independent media services agency.

Med students receive first white coats

When David Hartman (right) graduated from the School of Medicine in 1976, he became the first blind person to graduate from medical school. He recently came back to Temple to address the school’s new class at its White Coat ceremony in Mitten Hall. Today, Hartman is a psychiatrist practicing in Virginia.
