President Lester Lefton addresses the crowd, Oct. 3, 2013, minutes before univeristy trustee Jane Murphy Timken would announce that the Esplanade walkway will be named after Lefton. The dedication will commemorate the outgoing president not just for his efforts on the Esplanade, which was expanded to better connect campus with downtown, but for all of his improvements made downtown over the past several years.
