Florida Tech’s 15-acre Botanical Garden is now the Joy and Gordon Patterson Botanical Garden.
Gordon Patterson, Ph.D., a professor of history, has taught in the School of Arts and Communication for nearly four decades. His wife, Joy, recently celebrated her fifth year as a full-time English instructor in the SAC. The couple made a generous commitment to the health and vitality of the Botanical Garden.
