After more than three decades of working to keep the Tulane University uptown campus beautiful, and in light of his efforts to preserve the live oaks on campus following Hurricane Katrina, the university presented superintendent of grounds Tom Armitage with a live oak named for him during a retirement party on Thursday (May 29).
Armitage says he is looking forward to “trying to eradicate all of the blue crabs from Lake Pontchartrain” during his retirement.
