Flag half-mast for former employee

The American flag outside Sadler Hall flew at half-staff Thursday in memory of a former university employee who died April 3.

Helen M. Wilkinson, 89, retired from the university in 1985 after working in the library for 20 years.

According to her obituary in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Wilkinson was a university graduate with a degree in business. Several of her surviving family members attended the university, including one grandchild who is a current student.

Karin Lewis, staff assistant to the chancellor, said the flag flies at half-staff when any employee or former employee dies.
