BriWi Makes First Public Appearance Since Suspension

Suspended NBC Anchor Brian Williams made a small step back into the public eye.

On Saturday Night, BriWi showed up at a fundraising event for his old high school, Mater Dei High School in New Monmouth, New Jersey.

The school is trying to raise money to keep its doors open. 

"This is Mater Dei. It's been a very, very important part of my life," Williams said. "I had four great years here. I did not know it then, but it was the last degree I'd ever earn." 

"He had a lot of friends he went to school with," fundraiser co-chair Maria Buzzanco said to the newspaper "He was happy to come back to the Shore Casino because he went to proms there. He was greeted with warm hugs. Everyone was telling him how much they support him as well, and thanked him for coming.

Williams did not discuss his proms at the old high school, but we're sure if he did, he would take about great times with his date, Morgan Fairchild.
