Celebrating Coach's 100th Birthday

From the Daily Bruin (HT Diamond Leung):

Students, former players and the mayor of Los Angeles are expected to participate in a day-long celebration for John Wooden on Oct. 14.

Organized by the Undergraduate Students Association Council and various student groups, John Wooden Day is a day of commemoration of the late coach, a man who brought athletic greatness, leadership and inspiration to many generations of Bruins, said Jasmine Hill, president of USAC.

Although USAC and the student groups coordinating the event have the Wooden family’s blessing, their presence is doubtful because they are still grieving, Hill said.

The event will kick off at 9 a.m., with guest speakers honoring Wooden and what he meant and brought to the campus, said Gatsby Miller, USAC general representative.

Read rest of the details here. Needless to say we hope every BNer who is currently a student on campus or an alum who live in the area should attend this and all of us need to get the word out on this (aka please Tweet, Facebook, and email this to every single Bruin you know who would be interested).

Hope the Bruin Nation show up in force for a blue and gold celebration in memory of our intergalactic treasure:

Our Coach. Forever.

GO BRUINS.
