PETITION TO NAME AND/OR DEDICATE SOFTBALL FIELD IN HONOR OF KAYLEIGH BLAIR MCCLENDON

This petition had 1,112 supporters


The purpose of this petition is to have the softball field that is commonly known as “Field 1” and located at the Grady and Margie Long Softball Complex in Hartselle, Morgan County, Alabama named after and/or dedicated to the memory of Kayleigh Blair McClendon.

Kayleigh Blair McClendon was Hartselle’s smallest hero.  From May 2016 until her passing on November 15, 2016, Kayleigh Blair McClendon managed to do what no grownup person ever could – she united the members of our sleepy little community for a common purpose.  Kayleigh accomplished this herculean feat by inspiring millions of people around the globe with the courage, spunk and positive outlook that she maintained while battling a malignant brain tumor.

During her time here on Earth, one of the things Kayleigh loved best was Softball and, as we all know, her favorite color was purple.  In response to her love of softball, and the inspiration that she gave to everyone who knew her or knew of her story, softball players and coaches of all ages rallied around her by playing their hearts out on softball fields both near and far. Also, during this time, the phrase “Live Purple” was coined in response to Kayleigh’s love of all things purple.  To “Live Purple” simply means to live life to the fullest – confident in your faith, filled with hope, surrounded by love, drawing your strength from God’s grace and mercy – just like Kayleigh.

By affixing our signatures and addresses hereto, We, the Undersigneds, hereby request that the City of Hartselle honor the memory of Kayleigh Blair McClendon by naming “Field 1” located at the Grady and Margie Long Softball Complex in Hartselle, Alabama after Kayleigh and/or dedicating said field to the memory of the same.  In doing so, the City of Hartselle will be honoring its’ smallest hero by creating a constant reminder of what it truly means to “Live Purple” for generations to come.
