The Duke Physics Department mourns the untimely death of Dr. Mary Creason, Lecturer and coordinator of instructional laboratory activities for the past several years. Dr. Creason's passion for improving undergraduate education and graduate teaching assistant training will be missed. Our thoughts are with her children, who lost two parents in a terribly unfortunate automobile accident near their home in Stokes County, NC, on May 12.
At the wish of Mary's children Shannon, David, Cory and Joe, we will establish a special physics departmental fund in Mary's name for a scholarship/fellowship to be given to a student who excels in teaching physics in the Introductory Physic Laboratories at Duke.
If you would like to contribute to this fund, please send a check to Randy Best, payable to Duke University with a memo "Creason Scholarship Fund." All contributions to this fund are tax deductible. Donors will receive an acknowledgment from the Duke Physics Department. Our goal is to try and raise $10,000 for the fund.
