Retiring UW-Madison professors to be honored on May 20th

On Saturday, May 20th, the University of Wisconsin-Madison will honor Drs. Thomas Lillesand, Frank Scarpace and Alan Vonderohe for their nearly 90 years of combined service to the University and for their greater contributions to the field of geospatial science. All three plan to retire from the UW at the end of the spring 2006 semester. The professional community will pay tribute to them with an afternoon symposium and evening dinner banquet at the Pyle Center on the UW-Madison Campus.

Registration for the symposium and banquet has closed, but the planning committee is still soliciting tax-deductible donations for a geospatial science scholarship fund in the name of Tom, Frank, and Al.  For more information, contact Marcia Verhage at (608) 262-1585.
