Publication Date

The campus community is invited to a tree planting at 5 p.m., Wednesday, May 9 to honor the memory of Alex Askenazy ’20.

A short ceremony will be held between Frank Bailey Field and the Messa Rink parking lot. Refreshments will be served after the ceremony.

Askenazy passed away in his residence hall last October from an existing medical condition. A biochemistry major from Albuquerque, N.M., he was a member of Alpha Phi Omega. He was an avid hockey fan and played goalie for Union's club hockey team. He was also president of the fencing club.

Earlier this year, students from APO raised almost $10,000 for Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) in Askenazy’s memory.
