Student Government is officially dedicating the Kay Yow Memorial in the Coaches’ Corner beside Reynolds Coliseum today at 3 p.m. As you can see in the photo gallery above, the memorial consists of a bust of Yow, the Wolfpack women’s basketball coach who died in 2009. Chancellor Randy Woodson and Athletics Director Debbie Yow, Kay Yow’s sister, will speak at the ceremony, which will be followed by a reception in the Talley Student Center.
Acting on student suggestions, Student Government developed the idea for the Coaches’ Corner as a way to honor Yow and raised nearly $50,000 in private donations to fund it. Nearly two-dozen student volunteers planted a garden between Reynolds Coliseum and the Talley Student Center last spring, and her bust was added shortly thereafter. There are plans to add busts of other former Wolfpack coaches, though no timetable has been announced.
