Education Pavilion dedicated Sept. 24
September 24, 2008
Thanks to Drs. Richard J. and Carol L. Rezba and to Dominion, the VCU Rice Center dedicated its new Education Pavilion, an outdoor classroom adjacent to the soon-to-be completed education building. This pavilion will allow classes to be conducted on site within easy access to their field projects. The Rice Center has an active and nationally renowned education program that brings in middle and high school teachers from across the country during the summer months to participate in a variety of classes on the site, as well as bringing middle and high school students to conduct field work throughout the school year. Dr. Richard Rezba has been director of the Center for Life Sciences Education since 2000 and has been instrumental in the Rice Center’s achievement of its goal to be a first class outreach education site.
To accept the appreciation for this first teaching facility at the Rice Center, Rezba and his wife, Dr. Carol Rezba — a lifelong science and mathematics educator — was Mary Doswell, chair of the VCU Rice Center Board of Trustees and representative of Dominion.
