Sculpture as Memorial
This sculpture by a faulty member in the art department is a tribute to one of the students who died tragically in an automobile accident several years ago. He had been a "lifer"--someone who had started his academic career in the school many years before as a kindergartener, and he was a boy who was known and enjoyed by all of his classmates. I had known him since he had been a small boy, and because he also was the son of one of my colleagues, his death was particularly poignant.
