Fall 2013 Updates
Wava Memorial Garden
Since the passing of our beloved Wava Banes Turner Henry, the national leadership of Tau Beta Sigma is working collaboratively to create a Memorial Rose Garden to honor our Founder. Our vision is to have a beautiful reflection garden and park that will honor Wava for many years to come, all to be located at our National Headquarters in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The plans include a black granite pedestal dedicated to Wava, benches for reflection and meditation, a rose garden and other garden flowers and shrubs. Materials chosen for the Wava Memorial are intended to last forever in our beautiful park so that students and alumni can celebrate our Founder and have a quiet, contemplative space during a HQ visit.
We are still seeking donations for any amount for the Wava Memorial Gardens. Any donation from $1 - $999 will be recognized in our publications and in the National Headquarters list of contributors. We are also seeking larger donations for the Wava Memorial and donations of $1,000.00 or more will be recognized physically in the park. If anyone is interested in making a donation of $1,000 or more, please contact a member of the Board of Trustees.
The plan is to break ground on the Memorial in March 2014, with the unveiling of the project scheduled for July 2014. This will allow the national leadership to break ground on the project as part of our Founders Day activities, and to host a Wava Memorial dedication during the District Leadership Conference for student leaders in honor of the 75th Anniversary of Wava's journey in founding Tau Beta Sigma. Our goal is to raise $40,000 for the Wava Memorial Garden, and so far we are 75% to our achieving our goal!!!
To contribute to the Wava Memorial, please visit www.tbsigma.org to donate online or mail checks to National HQ. We are asking that donations for the memorial be sent to NHQ by March 26, 2014, in order to receive on-site recognition.
Thank you in advance for your donations, support and efforts towards the completion of the Wava Memorial!
