Mill Pond Honors Tigers

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

The Memory Care Unit at Mill Pond presented DePauw Women's Basketball team with a painting of a tiger that they had been working on since the Tigers won the Division 3 National Championship. Every Monday staff and residents scroll the newspaper to read and discuss the news stories from the weekend. The Monday after DePauw Women's Basketball closed their season with a perfect record and won the National Championship, residents read the article in the Banner Graphic and realized how they could use their own talents to congratulate the DePauw Women's Basketball team themselves. Mill Pond participates in a company wide art competition called "Living In Color," and usually Brooklyn Osborne, resident activity director, submits paintings to the home office. However, this particular painting of a tiger would be going to a different place. Every resident in the Memory Care Unit contributed to the painting in some fashion, once the final touches were made the residents invited Coach Kris Huffman to come for an open forum to present her with the painting in recognition for the team's perfect season and the great tradition she and her staff have built at DePauw University.
