Campus Champion

Many years ago, one individual quietly took over management of the College’s gem of a biological research station from George McDermott, emeritus professor. Today, thousands of students a year visit the Hoxie Gorge Nature Preserve six miles south of campus to study or commune with nature. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in scientific research is conducted there, and the seasonally varied rushing or meandering brook, fields and forests have inspired much prose in the form of research papers. R. Larry Klotz keeps track of the site’s use and ensures its roads, trails and lean-to are maintained. True, the distinguished teaching professor has earned honors before. This accomplishment elevates him to Campus Champion.
