Te Ata Fisher bronze planned
CHICKASHA — Notable artist Jon Hair has been selected to sculpt a bronze monument of storyteller Te Ata Fisher for the campus of the University of Science and Arts.
The statue will be south of the Alumni Chapel and north of Grand Avenue.
Fisher grew up in Tishomingo and graduated from the Oklahoma College for Women, now USAO. She performed in New York but eventually developed her own one-woman show dedicated to Indian culture.
The statue project was set into motion with a donation from Oklahoma College for Women alumna Nan Bilbrey Willett and her husband, John.
Colleges recognized for trees
The Arbor Day Foundation has named six Oklahoma colleges and universities as Tree Campus USA sites.
The honorees are Oklahoma City Community College, University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma City University, the Tahlequah campus of Northeastern State University and the northeast campus of Tulsa Community College.
The schools were honored for effective management of campus trees and campuswide conservation efforts. The program has five standards: a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, annual funding for trees, an Arbor Day observance and student service-learning projects.
