Among the younger trees on the Agnes Scott College campus are some that have been planted as memorials and others that honor long-serving members of the staff and faculty. Look for the plaques that mark these trees as you tour the arboretum.
Leon Venable is Associate Professor of Chemistry. His tree is a red maple (Acer rubrum), located across from the Bullock Science Center, along E. Dougherty Street.
In 2014, Leon had a second tree planted in his honor, a white oak (Quercus alba), for 30 years of service at Agnes Scott.
