Thomas Strickland, 1977-2005
Tom was an English major at UWG, and also worked as an assistant in the Ingram Library's Circulation Department. After his death while serving with the Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 108th Armor Regiment in Iraq, a fund was set up in his honor at the UWG Foundation, so that a book of literary interest could be added to the Library's general collection each year in his memory.
Donations to the Fund are greatly appreciated: click here to go to the online form.
