Groundbreaking for Tony's Alley

Tony’s Alley will be a garden area dedicated specifically for use and enjoyment by the OC community. It will feature landscaping, lighting, new flowers, shrubs and ample seating areas, and of course, Internet access, just as Tony would have wanted. The garden will be located directly outside Dr. Alley’s former office in the area between the northeast side of the Garvey Center and the Cogswell-Alexander Building. Dr. Tony Alley (1953-2008) was professor of OC’s New Media program (2005-2008). Tony began at Oklahoma Christian in 1995 as an Assistant Professor of Education. This event also marked the beginning of the Tony Alley Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded annually to a student of merit in the Art+Design Department. Faculty, staff and members of Dr. Alley’s family have been gracious with their efforts and financial support of these valued, tangible reminders of our colleague and his legacy to the Art+Design Department at Oklahoma Christian University.
