Mayo Graveside Park

In conjunction with the celebration of Texas A&M University-Commerce's 125th anniversary, the A&M-Commerce Foundation adopted the Mayo Graveside Park project. The purpose of the project is to help provide funding for the enhancement and upkeep of Professor William Leonidas Mayo's graveside. As one of the few universities in the country to have its founding father buried on campus, it is our duty and privilege to provide a pleasant, beautiful setting for Professor Mayo's final resting place. The Mayo Graveside Park project will ensure that proper distinction is bestowed upon the site and that this area of campus is a destination for the university community, visitors and anyone wishing to pay their respect to our history.
