‘Splitters for Summitt

28 Aug

 The LMU community is nothing, if not supportive of our collegiate brethren. Following the April 16, 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech the LMU community came together and reached out in a number of ways.  So it came as no surprise to me that following Pat Summitt’s announcement that she had been diagnosed with dementia, that two LMU students came forward to organize a show of support on behalf of our University community. The students, Tiffany Roach and Amanda Manis, took to Facebook to coordinate a ‘Splitters for Summitt photo opportunity.  The event invite reads:

“As a fellow Tennessean, Pat Summitt has put monumental effort into women’s basketball and women’s athletics in general. As a coach of 37 years, she has won 8 NCAA National titles. She is also the winning-est coach in men’s and women’s basketball. Without this amazing woman, women’s basketball would not be what it is today. Thank you Pat Summitt.

So come and show that the ‘Spliiters support Summitt by wearing orange on Tuesday.”
