Program Honors Individuals While Fostering a Greener Campus

For many years the late Bruce M. Edwards, brought his daughter, Jaimie, to campus for tailgating prior to Yellow Jacket football games. The experience was especially meaningful for Edwards, a loyal Tech fan and single parent.

Prior to his death in January at age 59, the Tech alumnus expressed a desire to have a tree on campus named in his memory. Although Edwards died before he could select his tree for naming, his daughter -- a specialist in the U.S. Army -- came to campus and found the perfect tree, very close to the area where she had tailgated with her father years before.
