Physical Plant Children's Memorial Scholarship Fund
Employees of Facilities Management have established the Physical Plant Children's Memorial Scholarship to benefit dependent children of University of Arkansas employees. The scholarship was established to honor the memories of children of Facilities Management employees who have died. The children's names will appear on a plaque that is placed on permanent display in the lobby of the Facilities Management building.
