Special Edition Virtual Lunch with a Legend: Baylor American Heroes - Jack Lummus and John Kane

DateNovember 11, 2020
Time12:00 - 1:00 pm

Baylor has a long history of preparing men and women for
service to our country as elected officials, civil servants, and military
leaders. Two such leaders, Jack Lummus (BSEd ’41) and John Kane (BA ’28) were
awarded our nation’s highest military honor – the Congressional Medal of Honor
– for their bravery and sacrificial service. The two also are believed to be
the only pair of athletes at any university in the nation to have been awarded
the Medal of Honor. Lummus played football, baseball, and basketball for the
Bears; Kane played football and basketball. In 2019, in honor of these two
remarkable men, alumnus Haag Sherman (BBA ’88) of Houston provided funding and
leadership for the design and sculpting of statues honoring these heroes. Those
statues are nearing completion and are expected to be installed on the grounds
of McLane Stadium in late November. In addition, Baylor Alumni will host a
special Lunch with the Legend event on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, in honor of these
men and all who have served our country and in recognition of the generous
donor who was called to honor them. *12:00 P.M. - 1:00 P.M. CDT
