RE: Diesel Memorial Project wrapping up
As a final note for a great accomplishment made in 2017 - the Diesel Memorial Project - I wanted to let everyone know that the total cost amount of the Diesel bronze sculpture ended up at $20,000. Over all we were just a few hundred short of what we needed ( amazing! great job everyone who donated!) & some very generous folks on the Board of Directors made up the difference.

There is a plaque that is mounted on the base of the sculpture. The plaque - for those who are not in the area to see it reads:
Diesel, beloved member of our Huskie family, became a symbol of N.I.U. football when he was shown giving his "High Five" after a Huskie score during a nationally televised game on November 13, 2013. Between 2005 and 2013, Diesel patrolled the sidelines and helped celebrate scores in virtually every home, away and Bowl game the Huskies played.
This Memorial was made possible through the donations of hundreds of N.I.U. Alumni, Corporate sponsors, students, and fans.
Dedicated October 26, 2017.

I hope to see many many pictures of fans & kids on facebook high fiving with Diesel. Be sure to tag Diesel H when you share your pictures. Thanks all.

GO HUSKIES! 04-cheers
