Facilities Management Mason, Sign and Paint Shops recently installed a memorial bicycle rack at Sunset Canyon Recreation Center, honoring UCLA alumna Joanna Wheaton, who was killed tragically in 2021. Jo was an influential student leader who helped to create many lasting projects at UCLA, including the bicycle powered festival Coastalong and the UCLA Farmer’s Market. The bicycle shaped rack includes a plaque honoring her legacy at UCLA.
Thank you especially to David Lamberth, Randy Hill, David Mendoza, Victor Garcia, Daniel Zavala, Emmanuel Sevilla, and Arthur Landinger for their hard work on this project. Thank you to UCLA Transportation for enabling this meaningful installation.
