Clock to be Added to Alumni Garden After Alumnus Donation
As a way to give back to his alma mater, Ron Blachley, of College Station, donated $30,000 to the SHSU Alumni Association, which will used to purchase a clock to be placed in the recently constructed Alumni Garden. The donation came after Blachley and his wife became interested in purchasing a $5,000 bench to be placed in the garden.
The 16-foot, four-faced Howard clock will be placed in the center of garden. The letters S, A, and M will replace 11,12 and 1. The letters H, O, U, S, T, O, and N will replace 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, and 2 on the face of the clock.
[T]he clock should be completed by August 2003 and will likely be dedicated during next fall's Homecoming activities.
