The senior bench should speak to the graduating class's experience at Linfield. In the past, the bench has been dedicated to major events that occurred during the class's time on campus. The bench can also be inspirational for the class. The bench should reflect the achievements, tone and culture of the graduating class.


Any questions surrounding this project and the selection process may be directed to Debbie Harmon Ferry.
