A seven-foot Wheaties box proclaiming Jim Thorpe "the greatest athlete of all time" was unveiled yesterday in the community that proudly bears his name.

Gov. Mark Schweiker took part in the celebration, which honored not just Thorpe, but the local students who helped convince General Mills to place him on "The Breakfast of Champions" packages.
