UW pays tribute to Laurel Clark

February 11, 2003

UW–Madison has recognized alumna Laurel Clark, one of the victims of the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. Clark received a bachelor’s degree in zoology in 1983 and a medical degree in 1987. Thus far, the university has:

  • set up a fund in Clark’s name to award a scholarship to a science student each year
  • offered a full scholarship to Clark’s son, should he choose to attend UW–Madison, and
  • placed a wreath in front of Bascom Hall in remembrance of Clark’s life and work.
