A February 2006 concert featuring pianist Faye Hays, an architecture
student, officially introduced the college’s newly acquired
and refurbished Jesse French Grand Piano.
The piano, which adorns the second floor atrium in the Langford
Architecture Center’s Building A, was graciously donated
to the college by Bob and Marge Reid, parents of 2001 BED graduate
Russ Reid. The inaugural concert was held in their honor.
The refurbishing of the piano — which previously entertained
the congregation of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Bryan — was
made possible by donations from College of Architecture faculty,
staff, and students. Professor David Woodcock, a member of the
church, helped locate the instrument for the college.
