Kevin Corbett, president of the KU Alumni Association, answered the ALS #IceBucketChallenge today after being called out by too many people to name.
The Borden Family Plaza in front of the Adams Alumni Center is named in part for Larry Borden, b’62, g’67, a former chair of the Alumni Association’s board of directors—and the one who extended the job offer of president to Kevin ten years ago. A year later, Mr. Borden passed away from ALS.
Kevin issued his own challenges after being doused by a surprise visitor with not one, but two buckets of water (that, unbeknownst to him, had been pre-chilled in the freezer at the Adams Alumni Center): Neeli Bendapudi, dean of the KU School of Business; Dale Seuferling, president of KU Endowment; and Morgan Said, KU student body president.
Friends, you have 24 hours to meet this challenge. Rock Chalk!
