Sept. 12, 2014 – Heritage of Leadership and Fall Book Awards Ceremony
Hilton UF Conference Center
UF Law graduates Sam M. Gibbons and Bill McBride – both war heroes, lawyers and politicians – will be inducted posthumously Friday into the Heritage of Leadership Society. The ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. in the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center, 1714 SW 34th St.
The event is closed to the public, but media are invited to cover the ceremony.
Co-workers, friends and family will speak in Gibbons’ and McBride’s honor and dedicate a glass etching bearing their images and a summary of their most significant accomplishments. The etching will be displayed on the second floor of Holland Hall on the law school campus as a permanent tribute to their contributions to the nation, the state and the university.
