first_imgPhoto from Wikipedia CommonsOn Wednesday afternoon, USC unveiled 18 new additions to the USC Athletic Hall of Fame as part of its 2018 class. The group, which includes Trojan legends ranging from football players to a mascot, will be formally announced on Nov. 4 during the Arizona football game at the Coliseum. Five former Trojan football players were featured in the 2018 Hall of Fame class, including future NFL Hall of Famer Troy Polamalu, All-American and Butkus Award-winning linebacker Chris Claiborne, along with Trojan legends of the 1960s Rod Sherman and Charlie Weaver. Joining them is J.K. McKay (son of John McKay) who will be inducted for his contributions as a wide receiver on two national championship teams and as a leader of the team’s athletic department from 2010 to 2016. Two inductees, Barry Zito and Mike Gillespie, enter the Hall for their contributions to the baseball program, while Sam Clancy is the sole alumnus in the class from the men’s basketball team. Hurdler Felix Sanchez and water polo player Lauren Wenger Trapani both won gold at the 2012 London Olympics before retiring. Meanwhile, volleyball player April Ross and swimmer Ous Mellouli are the only current athletes in the class, both having also medaled in previous Olympic games. Former tennis athlete Wayne Black, two-sport star Kim Clark Jennings (soccer and basketball), and golfers Mikaela Parmlid and Kevin Sadler round out the class from the athletics side. Current sports information director Tim Tessalone also joins the class, having served as an SID for the school for over 30 years, working 12 Rose Bowls and over 400 total games in his illustrious career. Finally, one non-human joins the 2018 Hall of Fame Class. It is none other than Traveler, USC’s horse mascot who has graced the sidelines of the Coliseum since 1961. After the class is introduced in November, the new Hall of Fame members will be formally inducted on May 19 at the Galen Center.last_img read more

Conference focuses on affordable housing for people with disabilities

first_imgWhat happens to Michael when I die? What happens if I’m in a car accident?These are the questions Monica Meyer started asking herself years ago about her son Michael McCormick. He has autism and epilepsy. He can set up a VCR but can’t cook a meal or test water to make sure it’s not too hot.McCormick, 35, lives on the top floor of a home that’s been converted into two apartments with separate entrances. Meyer wants to see her son grow, have experiences and learn to live a life separate from Mom.“I’m not going to be here for the rest of his life,” she said.Meyer’s concerns and other issues around housing were the basis of a conference on affordable housing for people with disabilities held Monday at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver by Parents Empowered and Communities Enhanced, otherwise known as PEACE.“Whether your child has a developmental disability or not, we’re anxious about how their lives are going to turn out and what it’s going to be like for them when we’re not around anymore,” said keynote speaker George Braddock, president of Creative Housing Solutions and an expert on designing homes for people with disabilities. “When we have a child with a disability, the conversation is more pointed. And I think it causes us to be more thoughtful and more concerned about what’s going to happen.”Meyer was a panelist at Monday’s conference. She talked to attendees about planning far in advance for her son’s future. When he was 12, she started talking about housing with a group of people.last_img read more
