Rocks for Ray

May 5th, 2014 Posted in Cover Story

On January 30, CCC lost a long-time professor and friend with the sudden passing of Raymond F. Leszczynski. Many who knew Ray or took any of his geology classes knew of his love and passion for different kinds of rocks. It was infectious, and people would bring him unusual rocks they found – often because of their own, newly-found love of rocks.

Each year faculty and staff participate in an Assessment Day function; so when it was held in February, participants were encouraged to bring a special rock as a tribute to Ray. On May 1, the rocks found a home when they were brought to the Nature Trail. With help from Sheila Myers’ Conservation and Natural Resources class, the rocks were placed around newly planted trees and flowers. They will bring a smile to all who walk along the trail as they think of Ray.
