A Campus Garden Memorializes Loved Ones Lost

A beautiful garden thrives around the south edge of the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts, and dotted through the landscape will be thoughtful memorials.

The first memorial is a remembrance for the late Tom Drummer, mathematical sciences professor who died last year, but the hope is that the friends and families of students, faculty and staff who passed away while a member of the Michigan Tech community may find peace in adding a remembrance stone for their loved one.

“I am delighted that the first stone in the Remembrance Garden honors Tom Drummer,” said Mark Gockenbach, chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences. “He was a great colleague and friend, and he had a lasting influence on the many students he taught, mentored and counseled.”
