|Clock Tower Named in Memory
of Dr. Frank Morgan|
clock tower being planned for the Hudson Valley campus has
been named in memory of Dr. Frank J. Morgan Jr., one of the
college's most distinguished and beloved professors.
This summer, the 30-foot clock tower will be placed
between the Guenther Enrollment Services Center and the Bulmer
Telecommunications Center. The black, metal structure will be
completed in August, serving as a visible reminder of Dr.
Morgan, who died in 2000.
"It's such a fitting
memorial because he always had time for everyone," said Anne
Morgan, Dr. Morgan's widow. "Students always came to him for
help because he was very honest and compassionate and they
knew he had their best interest at heart."
Morgan, in partnership with the Keepers of the Flame, an
associate of the college's retired faculty, administration and
staff members, and the Hudson Valley Community College
Foundation, is leading fund-raising efforts toward the clock's
purchase and placement. More
