Donation to memorial scholarships with “22 Forever” Pin

As the Utah football season begins the campus is remembering two players gone too soon.

Memorial pins honoring Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe are now available in the campus bookstore. For a minimum donation of $10 you can get a pin to show your support for the team and support the legacies of Lowe and Jordan. All proceeds will go to the scholarship funds that bear their names.

Both Jordan and Lowe wore the number 22 during their time playing football for the University of Utah. Jordan was killed in December 2020 when a handgun he was carrying accidentally went off. Lowe, who was the first recipient of the Ty Jordan scholarship, died less than a year later after being shot at a party following a football game. Following Lowe’s death the number 22 was retired from the football team’s roster.

The deaths of Jordan and Lowe are tragic and left the university community reeling. These pins will help fund the futures for other students and ensure that neither are forgotten. You can get more information on the pins here, and more information on the Ty Jordan scholarship here and the Aaron Lowe scholarship here.
