TU Basketball to Applaud Jacoby Hope Arnold

During Alumni Day on Saturday, Jan. 25

 

TIFFIN UNIVERSITY, Tiffin, OHOn Saturday, January 25, during TU’s alumni celebration of 115 years of basketball (80 years for men and 35 years for women), the community is also invited to applaud the milestones of the life of Jacoby Hope Arnold, daughter of TU alumna, former student-athlete and former women’s basketball assistant coach, Jillian Arnold. Before she was born, Jacoby was diagnosed with non-immune Hydrops Fetalis—a severe, life-threatening condition with odds of only 5% to be born alive, and then only a 5% chance to survive after birth.

 

This year, Jacoby started Kindergarten and Tiffin University is honored to acknowledge the brave little girl who has defied all odds by announcing her with the basketball team lineup as well as serve as the ball kid of the women’s game.

 

Alumni and their families are reminded to register and visit the mezzanine on the 2nd floor of the Gillmor Student Center gymnasium to enjoy food and beverages during both games--women tip-off at 1 p.m. and men tip-off at 3 p.m.

 

To register, visit tiffin.edu/advancement/alumni/events . Regular admission tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students and can be purchased at the door.

 

For additional information, contact Vickie Wilkins, Director of Alumni Relations at wilkinsvm@tiffin.edu .
