Founder’s Day Tree-Planting Set

March 31, 2000 -- A tree honoring Mrs. Marian Lee Stuart Cochran, a former member of the University of Virginia's Board of Visitors, will be planted in the Garden of Pavilion IV on Thursday, April 13, during Founder's Day activities. University President John T. Casteen III will preside at the planting of a tall stewartia at the 2 p.m. ceremony.

Appointed by then-Gov. Charles S. Robb, Mrs. Cochran served on U.Va.'s board from 1982 until 1990. She and her husband, Virginia Supreme Court Justice George M. Cochran, were co-recipients of the 1995 Outstanding Virginian award. She also has served as chairman of Monticello's Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation. Local and state boards and commissions she has served on include the Jamestown-Yorktown Commission and the Committee on Refurbishing of the Executive Mansion.

A 1946 graduate of Hollins College, Mrs. Cochran served on its board of trustees for 10 years and received the Hollins Medal as a distinguished alumna in 1985.

The Garden Club of Virginia awarded her the Massie Medal, its highest award, in 1980.
