Lake Erie College Welcomes Daniel ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger
College issued the following news
College is pleased to welcome
University of Notre Dame’s most
famous alumnus, Daniel ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger as part of the
College’s Founders Day celebration.
Join us Thursday, November 4 at 2 p.m. for an afternoon of
inspiration and motivation. The event is free, open to the public
and will be held in the Morley Music Building.
As a member of the Notre Dame
University Fighting Irish
football team, Rudy defined both his
personal history and collegiate sports in a mere 27 seconds when he
sacked the quarterback in the only play of his
football career, while an exuberant
audience chanted the now famous line RU-DY, RU-DY, RU-DY! Rudy’s
historic moment culminated his unwavering determination to play
football for the Fighting Irish
despite years of criticism, objections and obstacles.
Today, his message of “Yes I Can” is delivered to schools,
corporations and widely-recognized leaders including President
George Bush, General Colin Powell and Zig Ziglar. Speaker, author
and philanthropist, Rudy has established the Rudy Foundation whose
mission is to positively affect the lives of children cognitively,
emotionally, physically and spiritually. The Rudy Award Program was
created by the Rudy Ruettiger Foundation to recognize children who
make an outstanding exceptional effort to do their personal best
every day, overcome obstacles, set goals, stay on track to reach
their dreams and build the qualities of character, courage,
contribution and commitment into their lives every day.
