We have been saddened by news of the arrest and conviction of long-serving and highly respected State College police officer Tom Dann.
Mr. Dann (as we all called him) was our two children’s karate instructor for many years. He served as an outstanding role model, instilling in our children the tenets of integrity, perseverance, respect and indomitable spirit. His presence in their lives made our jobs as parents that much easier.
He has failed himself and his community, but by all accounts has acted with integrity since the charges were made, accepting his guilt and punishment.
We wish him and his family the best in these difficult months to come.
Lee and Michelle Kump
