Petition To Keep Michael Vick Out Of Virginia Tech Hall Of Fame

At least two petitions from have a combined 100000 signatures opposed to Michael Vick's Virginia Tech Hall of Fame induction. “By inducting Michael Vick, a non graduate, into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame, the University has decided to honor a man for his athletic ability rather than honor a person for being a decent and honorable human being,” wrote Jennifer Breeden, whose petition has received more than 60,000 electronic signatures. Rachel Beasley, whose petition has received more than 33,000 signatures, wrote: “The criteria states, ‘Must be of good character and reputation/not have been a source of embarrassment to the university in any way.’ Michael Vick was an outstanding football player, but his character is far from outstanding.” The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine — which acknowledges Virginia Tech as one of its two parent universities — released a statement from Dean Cyril R. Clarke also in opposition of honoring Vick. “The College unequivocally opposes honoring an individual whose past actions contradict our values and the cornerstone of our mission. Over the course of several days, I have communicated with President [Timothy] Sands and other campus administrators to express our disappointment and opposition to this decision. I continue to be in conversations with the president regarding this issue.”
