Gifts to Oaks at Junell Center Program to Help Landscape Complex
As the Junell Center/Stephens Arena nears completion, Angelo State University is offering individuals a chance to make an enduring contribution to the new facility and a living memorial to an individual, family or group through the Oaks at the Junell Center program.
For a contribution of $1,000 an oak tree will be planted adjacent to the facility as part of the permanent landscaping for the Junell Center/Stephens Arena. In addition to the tree, the donation will provide for a plaque to permanently recognize the persons and families being honored as well as the donors.
"These beautiful plantings," said Michael P. Ryan, ASU's vice president for university relations and development, "provide a unique opportunity to honor a loved one or family member in a very lasting manner and in a way that will bring beauty and serenity to a campus and community landmark."
The trees will be planted as part of the overall landscaping program that will enhance the attractiveness of the complex. The trees will be red oaks and live oaks. The trees will complement the complex's architecture and the bronze sculpture of a ram and ewe Rambouillet standing amidst a babbling West Texas creek.
Those making contributions to the Oaks at the Junell Center by Jan. 3 will be listed in the special commemorative program being planned for the Junell Center/Stephens Arena dedication scheduled Jan. 17.
"The Oaks at the Junell Center program is a way for everybody to participate in the excitement of this new facility and to make an enduring gift to recognize individuals who have been special in their lives."
Individuals desiring more information or wishing to make a contribution to the Oaks and the Junell Center program should contact the ASU Office of University Relations and Development at (325) 942-2116.
