    The Johnny Orr Project- final draft of letter to ISU/ Jamie Pollard

    Mr. Pollard:
    I am writing to you on behalf of The Johnny Orr Project, a grassroots effort of Cyclone fans who are committed to honoring former Iowa State University Coach Johnny Orr in a fitting and permanent way.

    Coach Orr has meant so much to Iowa State University and its fans, and we would like to pay tribute to his contributions to ISU and ISU athletics in an appropriate and timely manner. It’s important to us that Coach Orr be recognized while we are able to share our appreciation with him.

    We are an inclusive group and hope to promote and coordinate our effort within the existing network of groups that support Iowa State University athletics. We want to achieve our goal through cooperation with you and the ISU Athletics Department and in concurrence with your goals for the athletic programs.
    We have narrowed our preferences to the following options, realizing that each may require different funding methods and levels of financial commitment for completion.

    • A statue of Coach Orr outside Hilton Coliseum
    • Naming the street between Jack Trice and Hilton in honor of Coach Orr
    • Naming the basketball court after Coach Orr

    We seek both your blessing and your guidance in our pursuit and achievement of this goal, and would like to meet with you or someone you suggest on ways to move this project forward.

    We greatly appreciate your insight and assistance, and look forward to hearing from you soon on this important project. Please see our Facebook group page at this URL The Johnny Orr Project | Facebook
    ---------------------------------------
    This will be printed on a Johnny Orr Project letterhead and sent out with a similar address label, graciously designed and provided by CycloneK8. (I am also adding phone numbers etc to this)

    By the way, 145 members on Facebook! We're gaining steam!

    awesome job!!


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
