The 2009 senior class gift was three trees, presented and planted in memory of Whitney Hendrickson, the daughter of Political Science Professor David Hendrickson ’75 and Clelia Deane deMoraes ’75. Whitney was killed in an accident while home over spring break from her first year at Grinnell College in Iowa. The three weeping Siberian pea shrubs, planted in mid-May, are located north of the Tutt Science Center and the sundial. Members of the senior class raised more than $1,000 for the gift to honor one of their favorite professors.
