Sally MacEwen

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.

Sally MacEwen was Professor of Classics. Her tree is a willow oak (Quercus phellos) cultivar known as Hightower®. This cultivar was selected for its naturally developed central leader, uniform distribution of branches, upswept branches, and dark green leaves turning yellow in autumn. It is located on the Front Lawn midway between Main Hall and McCain Arch.
