Farewells: Dr. Donna Gray’s reflections on 32 years on the Hill

Posted by Trevecca on Jun 4, 2020 1:50:25 PM

There are so many people I’d like to thank. First, I’d like to thank my parents–they instilled in me a love of learning early on and let me know that they believed in me. My mom was an English professor, and my dad was a professor (math, educational psychology, speech, and education at Eastern Nazarene College) and administrator (academic dean and president of then Canadian Nazarene College in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada). Both of them taught [at Trevecca], Mom part-time for several years and Dad full-time for nine years. In fact, Dad and another professor started with grant money what was then the Learning Lab and is now part of Academic Services in the Center for Student Development. While Mom died 15 years ago, her godly influence continues to impact me. Dad, now living with me down here, has taught (and continues teaching) me about flexibility and variety, key terms that have epitomized his life.

You’re ready to finish the college degree you started years ago, or you’re finally committed to pursuing the bachelor’s degree you put off. Maybe you’re looking at a master’s or doctoral degree.
