For the Daily
Gerald Ford - a U.S. naval
veteran, University alum and
38th president of the United
States - was honored Tuesday
with a statue in the Great Hall

of the Ford School of Public Pol-
icy at the University.
The statue, modeled after the
one standing in the U.S. Capi-
tol building, was unveiled on
the centennial of Ford's birth.
Around 100 people were on
hand to watch Dean of the Ford
School Susan Collins, Brigadier
General Brent Scowcroft, a for-
mer advisor to Ford, and Mike
Ford, the former president's
son, speak.
Collins began the event with

a moment of silence, honor-
ing the victims of the Boston
Marathon before thanking
the attendees for coming and

Collins said Public Policy
students should start a new tra-
dition in regards to the statue.
"As you pass to and from
your classrooms, you might just
reach out and touch our spe-
cial statue of President Ford,"
Collins said. "I suspect he will

bring each of you good luck
when you do so."
Collins said she hopes the
statue will inspire students to
continue to address the world's
policy problems.
"While we can never do all
that we might wish, we must
always do what we can," she
said, quoting Ford. "It is my
hope that this statue right here
in our great hall, will inspire all
members of our community and
