After stepping down at St. Scholastica, Jay Newcomb ready to volunteer

Duluth News Tribune
Jay Newcomb called his letter sort of "tongue in cheek" but tinged with a certain reality when it came to his retirement this past spring. "I just don't want to sit home and do woodworking or gardening," he said. Not that he doesn't enjoy those pursuits; It's just that he has a larger view in mind when it comes to his retirement from the College of St. Scholastica.
