The statue is complete and is being shipped (from the Czech Republic) even as we speak.

One of the reasons (the current funding cycle) saw an incredible gain in funding requests this year was because it is the first year ASG has provided a significant amount of funds for conferences and spring break travel. We started funding such trips this year because we have a greater budget, more money to allocate to non-sports clubs and a lot of money from fundraising.

We want students to go on these trips. They are educational and valuable. For instance, one group is going to Venezuela, another to Mexico and another to help Hurricane Katrina victims in the south.

There's no question that he was a hero of the first order.
