Our Legacy at the University of Kentucky
On a cold December day in 1891, school colors were the topic of debate at the University of Kentucky campus. After settling on blue and yellow, a student asked the question “What color of blue?” A proud football letterman, Richard Stoll, was pleasantly surprised when another student then pointed at his tie and asserted “That blue”. A year later, UK officially dropped the yellow for white and the Big Blue Nation was born. Mr. Stoll went on to serve on the Board of Trustees for UK for nearly fifty years.
Richard Stoll’s commitment to serve was proven time and time again throughout his legal and civic career. Today, SKO is proud to continue what he started.
