Library Patio Named for Longtime Employee

Roger Johnson cuts a ribbon marking the dedication of the library patio that now bears his name. The ceremony took place during Homecoming festivities, Oct. 13. Located on the University Mall, the patio is adjacent to the west side of Pickler Memorial Library. Private gifts were raised for the naming rights during the Sesquicentennial Plaza campaign. The space was named in honor of Johnson, a longtime employee who retired from the Physical Plant in 2017 after 29 years of service. Johnson was, and remains, a passionate supporter the University, particularly its athletic programs. The patio now includes the addition of a bronze bulldog and a plaque marking its designation.
