Remembering Dr. Betsy Gordon


In lieu of our previously scheduled article, the editors of the McKendree Review would like to offer up this space to remember our beloved Dr. Betsy Gordon.

An avid supporter of Bearcat athletics and the arts, Dr. Gordon taught speech communication at McKendree University for twenty-seven years, enriching the lives of countless students with her positive outlook and unforgettable southern charm.

While there truly are no words to express how much she will be missed, we hope those of us who knew her can come together and love and support eachother a little more in her memory.  Feel free to share your favorite memory of this amazing woman in the comments.

There will be a memorial service for Dr. Gordon today at noon in Bothwell Chapel for all who are able to attend.

Rest in peace, Dr. Gordon.
