Sid Bacon's Journal
Rock Chalk March Madness
Written Mar 21, 2014 9:16amThis was certainly one of Sid's favorite times of year: wonderful weather, a beautiful spring desert, and plenty of March Madness.
Sid didn't make many requests in his final months, but he did demand that his children cheer on the Jayhawks in his absence. He would have been disappointed by ASU's last second loss on Thursday night, but the endless optimist would have turned to KU for some March hope.
So put on your team colors, find your family and friends, and turn on the games. Sid would prefer you wear red and blue, but he'll understand if your loyalties lie elsewhere.
ROCK CHALK JAYHAWKS, GO TEAM BACON!
Happy Valentine's Day from Sid
Written Feb 14, 2014 12:07pmLook closely! This morning there are wildflowers blooming where we scattered Sid's ashes -- the rest of the mountain is bare -- just a patch of flowers from Sid to wish all of Team Bacon a Happy Valentine's Day!
We Did It!
Written Jan 23, 2014 8:56amThanks to all of your generosity and support, Team Bacon reached its goal of funding $25,000 into the Sid P. Bacon Memorial Research Scholarship Endowment by December 31st! This means the Speech and Hearing Department will be able to award Sid's scholarship starting this year.
Sid was passionate about creating opportunities to support young researchers, and he would have been thrilled to see this scholarship come to fruition so quickly. We truly could not have accomplished this without all of Team Bacon's help! We are SIDSTRONG!
