LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Ted Brown taught at Eastern Oregon University for 25 years and on Saturday, May 30, his service is being honored with a tree dedication ceremony.
The event starts at 9:30 a.m. on the south side of Zabel Hall on campus. Brown will attend, along with his son Sandy. Guest speakers include colleagues Lois Barry, Abel Mendoza and Doyle Slater. Carol Lauritzen, professor of education, is the MC, and David Yoder with EOU Facility Operations will answer any questions about the established tree selected for the dedication and plaque installation.
Brown holds a legacy as a visionary and activist for social justice and equity in education. His love of teaching and sustainable forestry yielded exceptional benefits for EOU students and the environment during his tenure from 1966 to 1991. He was instrumental in creating the university’s Native American Program and founded and directed the Intercultural Institute, and Bilingual Teacher and Migrant Education Teacher programs which provided intercultural education experiences for teachers and expanded students’ horizons.
Known as an environmentalist and outdoorsman, Brown was honored as Union County Tree Farmer of the Year in 1983 and 1997, and as Oregon State Tree Farmer of the Year in 2008.
