755 is just one of the many numbers that symbolize
athletic achievements earned through honesty,
integrity and truth
in sports competition. In professional baseball the number 755
relates to the current all time home run record set by Henry "Hank"
Aaron. 755 is also synonymous with other outstanding records such as
Roger Maris's 61 single season home runs, Jack Nicklaus's 18 major golf tournament wins, Cal Ripken, Jr.'s 2,632 streak of consecutive
games played and Mark Spitz's 7 Olympic Gold Medals.
Hundreds of other records and achievements held by
young athletes and amateur competitors whose records, while less famous,
are equally as important and deserving of our praise. These
accomplishments are important because they are earned through hard work
and dedication. Like many of the professionals they emulate, student
athletes holding records through honest effort preserve integrity and
pride in professional and amateur competition.
