TWU tree planting to honor Dr. Sterling Smith


DENTON — A large red oak tree will be planted on TWU’s Denton campus in memory of biology professor Dr. Sterling Smith, who died Aug. 19, 2006, in a mountain-climbing accident in Colorado.

The ceremony will take place at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, between the Science Building and the Margo Jones Performance Hall. The public is invited to attend. For a map of the Denton campus, visit www.twu.edu/maps.asp.

Funds for the purchase of the tree were raised by the TWU Faculty Senate, which sought donations from current and former senators. The senators raised more than the $200 required to purchase the tree and gave the additional donations to the biology department’s scholarship fund established in Dr. Smith’s name.
