Tad Grover remembers the day Ohio University’s Grover Center was dedicated in honor of his father, Butch. Today, the building n
amed in his honor is primed for a rebirth. This spring, at a cost of $24.5 million, the former athletic center is beginning a transition that, by fall 2001, will see it accommodate all six schools of the College of Health and Human Services.

university. We thought you’d enjoy his message, too.

- Joseph is a good man.
A retired rail worker, he spends his days caring for his ailing wife, who is
debilitated by heart problems and Alzheimer’s disease. He has given up his small social life and most of his hobbies, absorbing himself in his
