Dedication of the Dr. Leo T. Cribben Giving Tree
The Cribben family has gifted the Hall Newman Center with a memorial giving tree to honor Dr. Leo Cribben for his dedication to the Catholic Campus Ministry at SUNY Oswego.
Dr. Cribben came to Oswego in the winter of 1928 as an instructor in the math department at the Oswego Normal School under Riggs. After five years at the school, he became Dean of Men and faculty advisor to the campus Newman Club. As an advisor to the Newman Club for 19 years, Dr. Cribben was very active in helping the club grow and flourish. He held regular club meetings, breakfasts, banquets, and celebrations to facilitate the Newman mission of nurturing student's spiritual, intellectual, and social development.
The tree, which is represented with a plaque in the Hall Newman Center, will be a way for benefactors of this campus ministry to provide support and remembrance in someone's name.
