DES MOINES — The Iowa High School Athletic Association has announced that they are shutting down the Iowa Hall of Pride located in the Iowa Events Center complex in downtown Des Moines. The Hall of Pride museum, run by the IHSAA, will conclude its public schedule and operating hours on June 30 and close its physical location during the 2022-23 school year. Before that, it will transition to an online platform featuring many of the experiences that have made the Hall of Pride a special venue since its opening in 2005. IHSAA executive director Tom Keating says while the Hall of Pride has been a unique space to honor excellence in Iowa’s history and education-based activities, the facility has seen declining attendance at the location in recent years. He says the association believes the best way to serve their member schools and the most students is through an online digital format called “Achieve”. Keating says the new digital format will make the Hall of Pride’s lessons available to anyone, anywhere at no cost.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A heartwarming tradition launched at Iowa home football games five years ago is getting another feel-good layer. The University of Iowa announced Wednesday that patients at UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital will get to pick the songs that accompany the Hawkeye Wave, at which fans attending games at Iowa’s Kinnick Stadium wave to patients at the adjacent hospital. The plan was announced two months after the university sought to have Hawkeye fans vote for the next song to accompany the Hawkeye Wave. The fans, in turn, suggested letting the kids pick. Now at every Iowa home game this year, the hospital’s Kid Captain — a Children’s Hospital patient who is picked to be honored at each Iowa football game — will help select a new song to accompany the Hawkeye Wave.
