It’s going to take a lot of discussion from the school board and at least a 3 to 2 vote to approve Scott Pace’s name be put on the floor of the old gym.
Capt. Scott Pace was a West Point graduate and a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army.
His helicopter was shot down just over a year ago during a mission in Afghanistan.
The Captain Scott Pace Committee is doing all they can to keep his memory alive. They're requesting his name be placed on the floor of the old gym at Brawley Union High School District.
Pace played four years of basketball there.
His father Pat Pace says they feel honored and he says Scott would be very surprised by this effort.
If approved, the floor would have Capt. Pace's name on it.
Pat Pace says it has been a tough year, but he’s thankful so many have supported he and his family.
The committee is made up mainly of Scott Pace’s friends from his high school Class of 1997.
The funding and the upkeep will be taken care of by the Capt. Scott Pace Committee.
