Not only has George Lucas received fortune and glory from his
film creations over the years, he is now getting an honor form the
place where he honed his skills. The University of Southern California
is bestowing Mr. Lucas with its Presidential Medallion on April
"We at USC are so proud to count George
Lucas as a member of our Trojan family," said USC
President Steven B. Sample. "He has
distinguished himself as a creative genius, a prescient supporter
of multimedia literacy and a devoted alumnus."
"Not only has he inspired and delighted
audiences worldwide with his imagination, but he is generous in
ensuring that new generations of artists and innovators can illuminate
the human condition and give wings to their greatest dreams,"
To read more about Mr. Sample's words read the article at the
Breeze, as well as read about Mr. Lucas' previous donations
to the school.
Now do you think he will walk down an aisle in a throne room like
they did in Star Wars?
