SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A man who spent more than two decades teaching at Evangel University, will be honored in a unique way today.

A community garden will be dedicated to late Evangel University professor Dr. Virgil Nicholson.

He spent 24 years at Evangel, first as a professor of education and then as the chair of the Education Department.

The garden, located at nearby Weller Elementary,  was funded and built by Evangel faculty and students.

It supplies Weller with fresh vegetables and during the summer, school families are invited to take the vegetables home for free.

The dedication will take place at 2:30 this afternoon at Weller.
