Letters to the Editor
To the Cal State L.A. Campus and Community:
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the special gift you and the California State
University Board of Trustees have bestowed upon me with the renaming of the sports complex at Cal State
L.A. to the Billie Jean King Sports Complex.
This effort involved so many people who touch the University and I am thankful to each of you for this honor.
My years at Cal State L.A. were a big part of my life and my career. I went to school there, I played
sports there and in part, many of my values were founded there. Those formative years were a major stepping stone for me.
It is humbling for me to be part of Dr. James Rosser’s vision for this outstanding University. Much of
the advancement the University has made over the past 30 years has been because of Dr. Rosser’s leadership,
his commitment to excellence and his desire to create a community of which we can all be proud.
I also would like to thank Dan Bridges and the entire Athletics Department team. Your dedication to
the student-athlete is impressive and I hope you know you are positively impacting the lives of the students who participate in your programs.
Today, the Cal State L.A. campus and community is a place where people champion people. I am proud
and grateful to be part of this outstanding campus and exceptional community.
Go For It!
Billie Jean King
