The spacious basketball arena is home to the Coppin State Eagles and Jericho was required to provide special protection for the new springboard floor. No stranger to working with Coppin State, JSI installed a custom public speaking platform in the new arena for the event. Many honored attendees used the stage to celebrate a lifetime of achievements by the Late Dr. Height who had a long standing relationship with CSU. The Honorable Dr. Maya Angelou, Poet & Author was among them. The seminal event served to launch two major programs in Dr. Heights honor at Coppin State University, and was to be attended by Dr. Height. Prior to her passing she was insistent that the event go on.
