IC Noon Rotary Stories

Jim Conard & Marv Cook, University of Iowa Homecoming and Football Program
Tom Cilek introduced Jim Conard, President of West Bank and a huge Hawkeye fan. Jim reminded our members that the I-club is now hosting luncheons and pep rallies every Friday before home games. Please consider joining Jim and other Hawkey fans at these events. Our members were also treated to a trivia game with Hayden Fry bobble heads as prizes. Here is a sample of the questions:
What is the average weight of Hawkeye football players? …….232 lbs.
What Iowa City Noon Rotarian was an All American at Michigan in 1947? ……. Bump Elliott
Jim Conard introduced Marv Cook, Des Moines Register High School Player of the Year at West Branch, Des Moines Register High School Coach of the Year at Regina, and one of the greatest Hawkeyes of all times. After Iowa, Marv played seven seasons in the NFL and was selected to the Pro Bowl twice. He has won 77 of 78 games and five straight state championshiops during his tenure at Regina.
Marv credits Coach Hayden Fry (and his 3rd grade teacher & 8th grade teacher/coach) for helping to make him a better person, man, coach, husband and father. His passion for Hawkeye football continues as he enjoys seeing his son, Drew, #18, suit up as a freshman for Iowa games. 
Here are some of Marv’s words of wisdom:
*No matter what the final score is and what is in the record books – you will never lose as long as you give it everything you have.
*Coaches are smart. We steal from everyone.
*Don’t let the win define you. Go on and do greater things!

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
