1000 Solutions Celebrated; Robertson Street Naming Ceremonies to Be Held in Spring
The 1000 Solutions Celebration began with an afternoon ceremony honoring Mr. Robertson at the Crispus Attucks Museum. This event also included a street dedication ceremony at which Deputy Mayor Steve Campbell officially named Oscar Robertson Blvd (formerly 11th Street) in honor of Mr. Robertson.
Other ceremonies included a reception on the IUPUI Campus honoring many of the Solution Center partners, and singling out the 1000th Solution, an exciting project that partnered the Pacers, the School of Informatics, and the Solution Center to preserve Mr. Robertsonís personal scrapbooks for donation to the Crispus Attucks Museum. A second ceremony was held that evening at the Pacerís half-time show where Mr. Robertson, Larry Bird, and Teresa Bennett, director of the IUPUI Solution Center, formerly donated the recently preserved documents to Patricia Payne, Director of the Crispus Attucks Museum.
Public ceremonies are planned for spring when the street signs go up on the newly renamed street just north of the IUPUI campus.
