Letter: Honor Coach K's name

(03/23/22 4:00am)

I know that there are a lot of tributes planned for Coach K. I don’t know if anyone is planning what I suggest as a great tribute. My name is not as difficult to spell as his. For my entire life I have had people pronounce it in every possible way. They stumble to say it, they ask if it is Japanese or XXX, you name it. Our family has been in the USA for 300 years with historical contributions. I invariably have to tell people how to pronounce it, and appreciate when I am asked how, where and what. I explain with pride.
