Tau Beta Sigma is working collaboratively to create a Memorial Rose Garden for our beloved Wava Banes Turner Henry. Our vision is to have a beautiful reflection garden and park that will honor Wava for many years to come and to be located at the National Headquarters in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The plans will include a black granite pedestal dedicated to Wava, reflection benches, a rose garden and other garden flowers and shrubs, as well as a fence and sidewalk around the garden area. Materials chosen for the Wava Memorial are intended to last forever in our beautiful park so that students and alumni can celebrate our Founder and have a quiet, contemplative space during a HQ visit. To stay informed on updates regarding the dedication, join the Facebook event page.
