Churbuck Memorial dedication Saturday

On behalf of Upper Iowa University’s School of Science & Mathematics, Dean Scott Figdore would like announce a couple upcoming events.

First, a memorial dedication honoring the late Emeritus Professor Lew Churbuck will be held Saturday. Oct. 3. A group of alumni originally contributed to the development of the memorial site, which is located near the Churbuck Prairie restoration area (just north of the bike path by the Pattison athletic practice fields).

A bur oak tree was planted by members of the Science & Environment Club at this site during last spring’s Fayette Appreciation Day. A bench and a memorial plaque are being placed by the tree this week and the informal dedication of the site is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. Everyone is invited to attend the ceremony.

Second, the School of Science & Mathematics will host a student/faculty poster session in both the Baker-Hebron and Colegrove-Walker buildings during Homecoming festivities on Friday, Oct. 9. The event will be held from 1-2:30 p.m.

In addition to the poster presentations, Dano Grayson ’10 will be available in Baker-Hebron Auditorium to share some of his most recent photographic and videographic works from his extensive international travels. The cell and molecular biology laboratory will also be open for viewing in Baker-Hebron during the event. The lab contains recent equipment upgrades purchased with a grant awarded by the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust.
