Bonus copy: Reflections

Jerry McKenna ’€™62 realized a dream when he was commissioned to create a sculpture of the man he idolized, Notre Dame’s legendary football coach Knute Rockne. He talks about his work and his idol in his Reflection Sculpting Rockne.

After the November 12 ND-Navy football game, Coach Charlie Weis and his team stood respectfully as the Navy band played its alma mater. Tom Cutler, a retired lieutenant commander in the Navy, recalls how that sight brought him to tears in his Reflection Our Lady Queen of Class, first printed in the Naval Institute’s Proceedings magazine.
