An update on Alex Melchert from Dean of Students Scott Brown …
Dear Wooster Community:
I spoke with Alex’s father twice today and he shared that Alex has just completed his third and final surgery, which he said went very well. Alex remains in critical condition, but is in good spirits.
We emailed photos of the letters that the community wrote to Alex, and his father has shared some of those messages with him. We will send the actual letters, plus a signed copy of The Other Wes Moore, with a hand-written message from Moore that says, in part, “You inspire us all and we can’t wait to have you back at Wooster.”
Alex’s father says that the odds are excellent for a full recovery, though the road ahead will be long. He also wanted me to tell all of you that “We are grateful for all the support of the Wooster community.”
With my warmest wishes,
