10/15/10 - Students and faculty at Stevenson University are honoring the work of a friend and colleague who was killed in a car crash in Ohio this summer.
Susan Slattery died when the car she was riding in was involved in an eight-vehicle pileup, including 3 tractor trailers.
Stevenson University's School of Sciences is continuing Slattery's passion to save the Chesapeake Bay with the "Reef Ball Project."
"Susan was the one putting it into the syllabus and taking the lead on this," said Susan Gorman, Dean of the School of Sciences. "It was a monumental undertaking."
The artificial reef will be dumped into the bay. The late professor collaborated with The Living Classrooms Foundation on a program for middle school students and ran a summer science camp for kids.
