Some Good Byes
The semester is quickly coming to a close. James Dawson, president of the college is in his final weeks on the job as he retires at the end of the fiscal year. We had a Coker Community barbecue for him and Karen at Kalmia Gardens on Sunday.
I didn't get a photo but we also had a luncheon last week for Dr. Lois Gibson, who has been an English professor at Coker for the past 31 years. She said that while she is going to miss Coker, she is ready to retire. Not many days after graduation she is heading to Europe for a trip to Poland. Through the years, one of her missions has been to strengthen the children's literature section of the Coker library for students heading into the teaching field. Many people will be sending honorariums to the the endowment fund in her name to continue strengthening that collection.
