Bob Wilson created this amazing table for his son, Charlie's high school graduation party last June. Charlie is majoring in flight science in the College of Aviation. 

Bob and his wife, Mary Anne generously donated the table to WMU and now all of our Aviation students living in Henry Hall can enjoy it. It is a masterpiece in design and workmanship for which we are very grateful!
