Keydet Club Hosts Basketball Lettermen’s Day
Alumni Lettermen are recognized on Costen Court in Cameron Hall.
The Keydet Club welcomed back ¬¬almost 20 former VMI Basketball lettermen to Cameron Hall for a special day honoring their achievements and participation during their cadetships on Saturday, February 4. The lettermen and their guests got to witness a big 86-79 win over the Winthrop Eagles in front of over 3300 fans, the largest crowd of the season. The lettermen were treated to a halftime special ceremony honoring all former VMI Basketball players at center court.
The Guests of Honor were the members of the VMI Basketball Hall of Fame. This special day marked the formal unveiling of the new VMI Basketball Hall of Fame banners in Cameron Hall, and each Hall of Fame member in attendance received a special introduction during the halftime ceremony. Hall of Fame members in attendance included John Kemper ’68, Curt Reppart ’76, and Damon Williams ’90.
Following the game the Keydet Club hosted a post game gathering in Moody Hall for all returning lettermen and their families. Keydet Club CEO Greg Cavallaro ’84 said of the event, “It’s so meaningful for former cadet-athletes to return to the Institute and for our current cadets to have the chance to meet them and get a glimpse of what their futures have in store after graduation.
We appreciate all those who did come back – its fun for the Corps and all VMI fans!”
