Whitney Bellinghausen Memorial Tree


A memorial Cherry Blossom tree was planted for Whitney Bellinghausen after her death in 2008. Bellinghausen was an American Sign Language student who passed away after being severely injured in a car accident in February, 2008. The tree was dedicated in October, 2008 on her 21st birthday, and it is located between Landers Hall and Lot J.

The image is from the dedication ceremony where the tree is in the middle of the image. Two golden shovels are behind it and were used to plant the tree. To the left of the tree is a statue of a white dog with pink spots wearing a pink hat. In the background Landers Hall and other trees can be seen.
