BROOKE: Today on this Monday… May 14th 2012…there was a line at the bookstore as many students hurried to buy parking passes and yearbooks… or to return last minute items such as their textbooks… before the year finally comes to a close…
BROOKE: I’m Brooke Serack… Thanks for joining us for our final DVTV this school year…

BROOKE: Thank you to all of our fabulous security guards. If you are interested in purchasing Tom Lambke’s book Spirit, Courage and Resolve stop him in the hallway and you can get a signed copy for only 20 dollars.
