THE PRESIDENT

1858
BAKER
UNIVERSITY

July 16, 2007


Dr. Charles W. Steger
Office of the President
210 Burruss Hall
Blacksburg, VA 24061

Dear Dr. Steger:

The events of April 16, 2007, forever touched the lives of all those connected to
the Virginia Tech family. The manner of grace and firm resolve demonstrated
by your faculty, staff and students has been an inspiration to our community.

The Student Senate of Baker University held a tree planting and remembrance
ceremony on May 3, 2007, in honor of those who died. A flowering dogwood
now holds a prominent place in a peaceful area of our quadrangle and is
accompanied by a plaque. We hope it will serve as a gentle reminder of the
significance of that fateful day and a source of inspiration in the spirit of
friendship, tolerance, and the principles of higher education.

You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Patricia N. Long
