For 45 years, Dr. Harry Downing, professor and former chair of the Department of Physics, Engineering and Astronomy, has made a career of serving others at Stephen F. Austin State University.

With a generous gift of support to the college, he has ensured this legacy and that of his late wife, Carolyn, will live on and continue benefiting students. In a recent meeting, the SFA Board of Regents named two rooms in the Cole STEM Building in their honor, the Harry and Carolyn Downing Physics Resource Commons and the Harry and Carolyn Downing Engineering Resource Commons.
