Petitioning Superintendant, Redford Union Schools Dr. Serena Shivers and 7 others

Rename the Redford Union HS gym the "RodneyT. Abbas Memorial Gymnasium"

Think back to when you were in High School...who was the one constant no matter what you were doing, seeing, playing? Who did everyone know by first name? That was Rodney Abbas. For over 40 years, every class knew and loved him. He hardly ever missed an event that he could help, and he was always there with a smile and his ever-present "Thumbs Up". Sadly, Rodney passed away on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 at the young age of 71. With his passing, another light has gone out.  

There is hardly a person in Redford who doesn't remember and love Rodney, RU's #1 fan. The best way to honor his dedication to RU sports, events and to Redford Township itself, is to rename the Redford Union High School gym the "Rodney T. Abbas Memorial Gymnasium".  We ask of the school board this very simple thing which is to honor Rodney with true "Panther Spirit" because he was the biggest Panther fan Redford Union, and Redford Township, has ever had!!
