Nike has decided to remove Joe Paterno’s name from their child development center, thanks to the findings of the Freeh Report.
The “Joe Paterno Child Development Center” is the largest child day care center on Nike’s 18-acre campus in Beaverton, Ore.
On July 12, the company had decided to change the name of the building, after the Freeh Report revealed that the late Paterno knew about Jerry Sandusky’s activities with young boys, but didn’t do anything about it.
Mike Parker, the President and CEO of Nike, said in a statement, “I have been deeply saddened by the news coming out of the investigation at Penn State. It is a terrible tragedy that children were unprotected from such abhorrent crimes. With the findings released today, I have decided to change the name of our child care center at our World Headquarters. My thoughts are with the victims and Penn State community.”
