Joel Reed Bench Initiative

In Memory of Joel Reed

Joel Reed Our friend and colleague, Joel Reed, left us on June 22, 2015.

He did not, however, leave our hearts and minds. As a tribute to his memory, we raised the $3250 necessary to have a commemorative bench placed on campus in his name. 

The bench is now in place, along the walkway between the HUB and Grange, at University Park.

Joel's bench installed next to Grange building and overlooking the HUB

The plaque reads:

Joel R. Reed
Son, husband, father, friend, colleague
forever in our hearts
