Robert Y. "Rob" Sandford, the Virginia Baptist campus minister at Old Dominion University for 39 years, will retire on June 5.

A special celebration in his honor is planned for Saturday, May 16, from 6-8 p.m., at the Baptist Student Center, 1410 W. 49th St. University friends and colleagues are invited to attend. Guests are asked to park in the Foreman Field parking garage.
