Bethel College will celebrate the naming of the Therese and John Gardner Softball Field on Friday, March 31 at 2:45 p.m. The recently constructed softball stadium is located on the corner of Liberty Drive and West LaSalle Avenue on Bethel’s campus.

Therese and John Gardner are long-time supporters of the college, funding the renovation of the school’s Logan Street entrance in 2011, as well as the Theatre Department’s yearly student trip to the Stratford Festival and the Business Department’s yearly Etiquette Dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. John also serves on Bethel’s Board of Trustees.

A cookout and softball game versus Taylor University will follow the naming celebration. For more information, contact the Institutional Advancement office at 574.807.7610.
