HAVERFORD COMMUNITY DEDICATES GARDNER CENTER
More than 200 alumni, students, friends, and other well-wishers came out on a rainy Saturday morning on April 22 to celebrate the formal dedication of the Douglas B. Gardner '83 Integrated Athletic Center.
President Tom Tritton offered opening remarks and soon found his hands full, as Haverford student-athlete representatives approached the podium bearing ceremonial gifts of athletic gear. The Chamber Singers of Haverford and Bryn Mawr, directed by Thomas Lloyd, provided a rousing musical interlude.
Master of ceremonies Arn H. Tellem '76 praised the facility and all of those who worked on the project, including those who raised funds for it, including lead donor Howard Lutnick '83â€”who, in turn, offered some emotional words to acknowledge the Gardner, Glasser, and Gooding families and the tragedy that took three vital members of the Haverford community on Sept. 11, 2001.
