UF needs help to gain matching funds for its O’Connell room

first_img December 1, 2002 Jan Pudlow Associate Editor Regular News UF needs help to gain matching funds for its O’Connell room Associate Editor Walking into Stephen C. O’Connell’s study at his Tallahassee home was like walking into a shrine of Florida history.There’s the picture of the University of Florida president as a student in 1938, a middleweight undefeated champ in the boxing ring, captain of the team.There’s one of O’Connell smiling with the pope.Autographed photos of retired justices, along with personal notes, are reminders of the years O’Connell served on the Florida Supreme Court from 1955 to 1967.An honorary degree from Florida State University prompted O’Connell to declare: “I got a degree from FSU, but I obtained my education at Florida!”The study was the gathering place during the annual barbecue hosted by O’Connell for the throng of college students interested in government and the law, who loved to hear the remarkable man’s many stories.And the study was the very place O’Connell took his last breath on April 14, 2001, at the age of 85.Former colleague and family friend Tallahassee lawyer Crit Smith was talking to O’Connell’s widow, Cindy, about all those mementoes. Cindy O’Connell wondered what in the world to do with her husband’s historic possessions, as well as his desk where he pondered and penned important thoughts.“I said, ‘So many student leaders who now have gone forth to be leaders in Florida politics have come through this room,’” Smith recalled. “‘Wouldn’t it be nice if you could move it intact to the university as a museum?’”The reaction from Cindy O’Connell was instant delight, and she carried forth the idea to what is now a fund-raising drive to create the Justice Stephen C. O’Connell Supreme Court Reading Room at the UF Levin College of Law, Legal Information Center.“The reading room is a concept to share Stephen O’Connell’s love for the law, love for the University of Florida, and to share that with students as they go through law school, as well as alums,” Cindy O’Connell said.“Steve, of all things, loved students. After he left the presidency, the 30 years after that until his death, he was close to all age groups, as a mentor, giving advice, sharing his stories.”The push for contributions for the O’Connell Supreme Court Reading Room coincides with the UF law school expansion. Plans are underway to raise an additional $1.3 million by the end of the year toward renovation of the existing Holland Hall Law Center, named after former Florida Governor and U.S. Senator Spessard Holland, a 1916 UF law grad.Included is a major addition to the law library, with the resulting 80,751-square-foot facility to be named the Lawton Chiles Legal Information Center, after the late governor and U.S. senator who earned his UF law degree in 1955. Upgrading and enlarging the library and teaching facilities, Dean Jon Mills said, is critical for retaining American Bar Association accreditation. The expansion, he said, will place the center among the top 20 of 182 academic law libraries in the country, in terms of space.Mills praised the leadership of UF President Charles Young and Provost David Colburn in designating funds to supplement the private fund-raising effort.“With the $6.3 million we raised and the state matching funds for this priority UF project, plus the $12.6 million provided by President Young and the university, we have a major part of what we need to provide first-class facilities to match first-class students and faculty,” Mills said in a prepared statement.As for the O’Connell project, the clock is ticking to complete the fund-raising campaign by December 31 — with a $500,000 goal — in order to receive state matching funds. Any gifts or five-year pledges must be documented before January 4, 2003, to qualify.The vision for the reading room is not only to house O’Connell’s mementoes but also to be a place of recognition for all Florida Supreme Court justices who are UF alumni, through a display of portraits, photographs, articles, and historical documents. The room will be a place to study for law students, as well as a gathering place for faculty and alumni events.Cindy O’Connell said though she is very pleased about the project, she admitted “the hard part will be releasing all of the mementoes. But Stephen O’Connell was never mine. He was the state’s and everyone else’s. I learned that a long time ago.” For more information on contributing to the Holland Hall Renovation Project Building Fund and/or the O’Connell Reading Room, contact the University of Florida Levin College of Law, P.O. Box 14412, Gainesville, FL 32604-4412, phone: 352-392-9296, fax: 352-392-3434. Checks should be made payable to the University of Florida Foundation, Inc.

Brand repositioning in uncertain times

first_img continue reading » Would you characterize your credit union’s response as “survival mode” to the worst drop on record for the U.S. economy? All hands on deck! Behaviors change, systems are abandoned, and your branding and marketing strategy is now in limbo.The unfortunate truth is many credit unions are letting busyness get in the way of progress. Almost every financial institution has taken a hit. But there are those who have bounced back much faster or even yielded extraordinary results in the first half of this year because they have prioritized what’s important to them and stuck to a practical, flexible framework.In short…Gritty = Good. Busy = Bad.As we’ve studied the credit union brands that have raised their performances to new levels, vision drives everything. They recognize that their branding and marketing strategy are undeniably necessary. Why is that exactly? Their credit union brand is at their core, and it influences their people, their thoughts and their actions.

Mount Rushmore of the NBA

first_imgOften considered the greatest NBA player ever, Michael Jordan joins Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson and Bill Russell to complete Earl Austin’s NBA Mount Rushmore.St. LOUIS, Mo.–Miami Heat superstar LeBron James sparked quite a bit of conversation recently when he said that he would eventually be on the Mount Rushmore of National Basketball Association players.That got me to thinking: What would be my NBA Mount Rushmore? It took me all of 30 seconds to figure out what four figures I would put on that mythical mountain of NBA gods.Earl Austin Sr.My Mount Rushmore consists of Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan. Not only were these gentlemen great individual players with championship legacies, but they were also absolute game-changers in one way or another. They were transcendent figures as well as all-time great players. The game is different because of their participation, on and off the court. They are icons.Bill Russell: The greatest winner in North American sports history, Russell was the catalyst of the Boston Celtics dynasty. He led the Celtics to 11 championships in 13 years. He also led San Francisco to two consecutive NCAA championships and undefeated seasons in 1955 and ’56. He was also the captain of the USA team that won the gold medal at the 1956 Olympics. Russell was the greatest defensive player in the history of the game. He made defense a big part of the game. Although he wasn’t the first African-American player in the NBA, Russell was the NBA’s first African-American superstar. At a time of great racial strife and segregation in the country, Russell was a very outspoken figure against racial injustice in the U.S. He was the first African-American coach in American pro sports. Russell received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in 2010.Wilt Chamberlain: The most dominant player to ever play the game. The accomplishments and outrageous numbers that Wilt put up are well documented. He scored 100 points in a single game. He had 55 rebounds in a game. He averaged 50 points in a single season. He never fouled out of a game. He averaged 30 points and 22 rebounds for his career. He even led the league in assists one year. What made The Big Dipper a game-changer was that he was responsible for several rule changes in the game because of his dominance. They widened the lane, outlawed goal-tending and offensive basket interference and changed several other rules to try to counteract his sheer dominance.Magic Johnson: Nobody had ever seen a player of Magic’s size and dimensions (6’9” and 230 pounds) play point guard before he came along. He was the leader of those great Lakers’ “Showtime” teams that won five NBA titles in the 1980s. Magic did it with style, passion, enthusiasm and great competitive fire. He made it cool to pass the ball and empowered tall kids all over the world that they could play anywhere on the court and not just in the low post. Magic is also largely responsible, along with Larry Bird, for bringing the NBA back from the abyss. When he entered, the league was widely unpopular to the point where the NBA Finals were broadcast on tape delay. The Magic-Bird rivalry rescued the NBA and brought its popularity to an all-time high at the time. Their epic 1979 NCAA championship game showdown also changed the college game forever.Michael Jordan: Considered by many to be the greatest player of all time, Jordan has transcended into pop culture. MJ led the Chicago Bulls dynasty of the ‘90s, which included two three-peats and six total championships. Jordan averaged 30 points for his career and was perhaps the most cold-blooded clutch competitor ever to play. He also won two gold medals for the USA in the Olympics. He took the mantle from Magic and Bird and increased the NBA’s popularity to a world-wide level. He brought the marketing aspect of the league to new heights along with Nike and famous director Spike Lee with those Air Jordan commercials. Everyone wanted to “Be Like Mike.” Television ratings reached all-time high levels during the Jordan era.http://www.stlamerican.com/sports/sports_columnists/inside_sports/article_80a32c4a-99c3-11e3-9527-0019bb2963f4.htmllast_img read more
