LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 13, 2014) — Students, faculty, staff, alumni and fans share a special kind of spirit for the University of Kentucky.
But there’s only one “person” who embodies the spirit of UK while serving as the official ambassador for the Big Blue Nation on the court and field as well as in the classroom and lab. Watch the video above as UK Cheerleading Head Coach Jomo Thompson and The Wildcat work together to explain the importance of this valuable UK tradition in a special March Madness edition of “Who Does That?”
This video feature is part of a series produced by UKNow called "Who Does That?" The idea is to show you the unique students, faculty and staff who make UK tick.
We want to showcase how UK students, faculty and staff work each and every day to keep the Kentucky Promise alive and well.
Since the "Who Does That?" series is a monthly feature on UKNow, we invite you to submit future ideas. If you've ever wondered, "Who does that?" about something at UK, please email us. Who knows? We might just use your question for our next feature!
