I am on the "Philanthropy Committee" for the interns here at the TOYOTA plant in Indiana, and today we had an event where we worked with the local Habitat for Humanity chapter at a subdivision in nearby Evansville where they are building. After our shift they were having a dedication for a recently finished house in the neighborhood, so my wife and I went over to see it. It turns out that the house was sponsored by none other than the Jerry and Bobbye Sloan Foundation, and guess who was there to give the key to the new owners? That's right - good old Jerry. Imagine me going up there covered in sweat and little bits of grass seed and straw (we had been seeding and laying straw in the neighborhood all morning) to shake his hand, in my beloved Pistons ringer tee. Jerry was real nice and laid back. I was up there on the porch with a few other interns, and he was asking us where we go to college and such (he ribbed me a little about the Pistons shirt and thought it was funny that I go to BYU in Utah of all places). One of the funny things he said was when one of the interns told him he goes to Georgia Tech, he told us how he has a player who went there (Matt Harpring), and then, with a laugh, he goes, "That is the most spoiled player you will ever meet." I think he was just joking around. I found out that Sloan went to college at U of Evansville, and now he pays his daughter to run the foundation out of his pocket so that money from the foundation's donations aren't taken out of to pay for the director's salary. Real classy guy. Cool, huh? I thought this could be a good thread to share stories of famous (or infamous, hehe) people we have met. Or even of noteworthy non-celebrities we know.
