 Join us outside of CTR for a S.M.A.R.T. service project from 11:30am-12:30pm to update the planter beds with new, beautiful perennial flowers alongside the UofL Grounds team! Be a part of greening up and beautifying our campus community. All are welcome and all equipment will be provided. Please register in advance.

Following our planting workday, the Department of Pediatrics will be planting a memorial tree in the same area at 12:30pm to honor a former staff member, Sarah McKinney, who has since passed. Sarah was a beloved member of the campus community and worked as a Technical Specialist, Sr. in the Department of Pediatrics. She reinvigorated the UofL LGBTQ+ Faculty Staff Association (FSA) and grew its membership to more than 100 participants, after the group was dormant for a number of years. Sarah was also leader in the transgender community and served as chair of the Transgender Wellness Summit and co-founder of the Kentuckiana Transgender Support Group. She was a role model and mentor to countless individuals, assisting people through their transitions, and could always be counted on for support, assistance or encouragement. RSVP here for the tree planting.

Co-sponsors include: S.M.A.R.T. (School of Medicine Advancement, Retention, and Training) Staff, Department of Pediatrics, LGBT Center, UofL Sustainability Council, Physical Plant, and HSC Green Team.
