Sand dollar ornaments adorn a Christmas tree inside the Bennett Administrative Suite on the second floor of the Lavin-Bernick Center (LBC). The ornaments originally belonged to Shirley Pratt, a Tulane University alumna who worked in the School of Liberal Art's philosophy department for many years and was a loyal fan of Green Wave football and baseball. Following her death at age 90, Pratt’s daughter Shirley Dymond, associate director of the LBC, continues the family tradition in rememberance of her mother.
