Sept. 25, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The University of Kentucky class of 2002 added its special touch to campus with a historical marker donated to the university to mark Memorial Hall.

UK President Lee T. Todd Jr. and first lady Patsy Todd were on hand for the Sept. 24 dedication. Memorial Hall was built in 1929 as a memorial to those who died during World War I.

The building is one of the most treasured and recognized symbols on UK's campus and is used in the university's official logo.

The UK Student Development Council began the Historical Marker and Academic Scholarship Program in 1994 with the assistance of the Kentucky Historical Society. The council's Senior Challenge raises funds for the marker program to get seniors involved with giving back to the university. Money remaining after marker expenses is applied to student scholarships.
