John Set to Participate in Myles Brand Memorial Tribute
10.21.2009 - John will be taking part in the Oct. 28 memorial tribute for former National Collegiate Athletic Association and Indiana University president Myles Brand. The NCAA will host the event in conjunction with IU at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Brand, who died from pancreatic cancer on Sept. 16, was the first university president to lead the NCAA as its chief executive. He assumed that post in 2003 following his service as IU president from 1994 through 2002. It was during his IU tenure that he presented John an honorary degree in 2000, when John gave the spring commencement address.

During Brand's tenure John's lead gift helped the university build its indoor football practice facility.

Brand’s distinguished career in academia was capped by his time at IU, where he presided over a period of record student enrollments and national leadership in information technology and the life sciences, while continuing the school’s recognized strengths in the arts and humanities.

The Oct. 28 tribute will involve guest speakers, video tributes and performances. John will sing “Longest Days” and “Save Some Time To Dream.”

While attendees are being invited to the tribute, a limited number of seats are being made available to the public. Click HERE for more details about the event including how to request tickets. Click HERE to read the NCAA's press release.
