Brian Williams Makes First Public Appearance Since NBC Suspension

Former NBC anchor Brian Williams made his first public appearance on Sunday since his suspension , using his celebrity to help his old high school stay open. Williams attended at a fundraiser for Mater Dei, the Catholic high school in New Jersey that he attended. The anchor spoke with local paper The Two River Times , which called him the school's "most famous graduate" in its report on the event, the "Save the Seraphs" gala. Williams had not been seen at a public event since his suspension in early February for six months without pay after falsely recounting his experiences while reporting in Iraq.
