   The School of Education hosted an open house April 29 in the newly renovated Willard Hall. The open house included two special events, in addition to student jazz duet of Timothy Woods and Anthony Newton and refreshments.  

   The first event of day included a book signing by Cecil Haywood of his new book, “The Waters of Summer.” Haywood, professor emeritus, served as the dean of the School of Education for 28 years. 

   Haywood said of his book, “I wanted to tell a story that had never been told before, by someone who experienced it.”

Statue - Dedicated by Martin, the statue is outside of Willard Hall.

   After the book signing, the School of Education unveiled a statue donated by Sue Martin, assistant professor of education. The statue was made in honor of her mother Dr. and Mrs. J.P. Swearingen. The bronze statue is located on the left side of Willard Hall under a magnolia tree.  

   The statue depicts a mother reading to a child, while another mother sitting next to her lifts a child above her head.  

   Martin said the statue reflects her feelings of students – before one can teach they need to care. Martin also said the statue reflects her family, as both of her parents pushed her to get an education.
