Much respect. You very much deserve that award. http://www.johncblandii.com John C. Bland II I enjoyed this speech. Well done.We’re aligned on the human rights bits for sure. Brian Krogsgard As an Auburn alum (and from the Industrial Engineering dept to boot!), I can say Tim Cook is an awesome representative for the university.He’s given back a ton and I love how he even does relatively small, but awesome, things like sharing the university newspaper’s articles when Auburn does well instead of linking to ESPN or other big sites.
