Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is loved by many … most who don’t want to see him leave the team in free agency.
However, that fact seems inevitable.
But for some National Honor Society students at Lakeview High School in Battle Creek, Mich., they have been trying to reach him. You see, Battle Creek is not far from Western Michigan University where Jennings went to school. Since joining the Packers, his following at Lakeview High School has been huge.
That said, several students who have been trying to reach Jennings to invite him to the NHS induction ceremony as a guest speaker, have struck out. They reached out to me at this site and I contacted the Packers public relations department. Working as a middle man, I forwarded the invitation letter to the Packers who then placed it into Jennings’ inbox just before the Packers’ Divisional Playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.
We all know how that game turned out and, according to one source in the PR department, Jennings left 1265 Lombardi Avenue quickly after returning from San Francisco and didn’t check his inbox. It was unclear how soon Jennings might be back to check his mailbox, according to the PR department source, given his free agent status.
The students at Lakeview High School sent another letter to Jennings with the hope that this one reaches him.
So, the question is, Greg Jennings – where are you?
These students would love to contact you … will you answer them? They love you and the Packers and surely would be very happy to hear from you.
My hope is that the students have good news soon.
We’ll keep you apprised …
