Terry Kath Petition/Need your help!
« on: November 07, 2008, 08:03:42 PM »
I am part of the Chicago Tribute Team and am helping to organize the
tribute to the band that will take place during the summer of 2009.
Check out the recently updated webpage for more information on
the tribute: (www.chicagotribute2009.com).

As a result of planning the tribute, several former students of Taft
High School in Chicago, Terry Kath's alma mater, have contacted
me. They are very excited about what we're planning but alerted us to
the fact that Terry is NOT listed among their distinguished graduates.
Upon further research, we found out why. The TAA Officers cite a) he's
no longer living and b) his manner of death is NOT a positive role
model for their students. Both are ridiculous reasons for keeping him
out!

A petition has been started to change the school's criteria AND to
push for Terry's induction:

Please take a moment to sign it and help spread the word. You are NOT
required to include your address, etc., but we respectfully ask you to
sign with your name; it will make sure your vote is valid. Post the
link on your webpages, myspace and/or facebook pages. It will be used as part of a presentation at the next alumni board meeting scheduled for mid-November. So we want the number of signatures to be as high as possible!

Thanks in advance for your help!
