Location:

County-Wide

Event Type(s): Other
Organization: Malone University
Description: Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE

Malone University will dedicate its newest residence hall at a special ceremony Friday, October 9, 11:30 a.m., following the University’s Homecoming chapel service.  The Georgian Colonial structure, located on the former Bob Starcher (baseball) Field, was opened at the beginning of Spring semester 2009 and houses 230 students. The public is invited to attend the dedication service.

 

Blossom Hall is being so-named in honor of Dudley S. (Bun) Blossom III for his longtime service to Malone University as a thirteen-year member of the Board of Trustees, for his keen interest in student life at Malone, and for his philanthropic generosity to the University and the community at large.  The Board of Trustees Executive Committee, empowered by the Board of Trustees, came to the unanimous decision.

 

Board of Trustees Chair, Don Harper, remarked, "We are pleased that our newest residence hall now carries the name of one so dedicated to this institution of higher learning and all she stands for.  Mr. Blossom has led by example through his service to Malone, strength of character, commitment to students, and a spirit of humility."

 

According to Dr. Gary Streit, president of Malone University, "We are pleased that Mr. Blossom has accepted the trustees’ decision to recognize him in this manner.  I have had the pleasure of working alongside Bun for the past two years, and appreciate his quiet – and most efficient – work ethic.  For decades to come, Blossom Hall will house thousands of students who will benefit from his wisdom, caring, and generosity, long after his tenure on the Board comes to an end."
