Tracey Sparling Memorial to be Dedicated the 25th in Portland

Tracey Sparling Pedal Garden:  PNCA/M Miller
A stray tweet the other day alerted me to the Tracey Sparling Memorial Pedal Garden. According to a Pacific Northwest College of Art press release, it will be dedicated on January 25th.
Sparling was a recent graduate of West Salem High School attending PNCA when in 2007 a person driving a large truck struck and killed her as she waited on her bike at an intersection.

The dedication will be at 11:30am in Swigert Commons of PNCA at 1241 NW Johnson Street in Portland.
