Plantations staff help Cornell Class of 2015 honor lives lost
Plantations natural areas staff helped the senior honor society Quill & Dagger plant a grove of trees along Cascadilla Creek to celebrate the students of the Class of 2015 whose lives were lost. In addition, the senior class, spearheaded by Lara Keskinkaya and Sam Coleman, raised
funds to plant a “Tribute Tree” on the pathway between the Engineering
Quad and Collegetown, for seven members of the Class of 2015 who died.
President Skorton paid tribute to these gestures in his Commencement speech on May 24. Read more in the Cornell Chronicle article, "At Commencement, Skorton confers the 'generosity of spirit.'"
