The University congratulates Dr. Suzana Tkalcic (CVM), for winning the
Campus Esplanade design competition, which opened to the campus community
in August 2006. Tkalcic’s design, “”Fountain of Values,”” earned her the
first place prize.
The winner was selected based on creativity and the ability to convey the
three principles of WesternU: humanism, caring and compassion.
The design element created from Tkalcic’s submission is slated to be
placed as a permanent outdoor feature, located in the vicinity of
Founder’s Park and the Health Professions Center.
The university also salutes Debbie Pace (CDIHP), whose untitled design,
placed second, and John Hiroto (Purchasing) for his submission, “”Umbrella
of Light,”” which he won third place for.
The design competition was suggested and judged by members of the
WesternU Board of Trustees. They also decided on the awards for the
first-, second-, and third-place winners, which are $500, $250, and $100
The other design submissions not selected are being retained as potential
elements that may be added during future campus construction.
