A memory submitted by Claire Aldridge Heck, Class of 1984

It is impossible to narrow my list of favorites to just one! Without a doubt, Alessandra Comini tops my list. Her multimedia presentations that weaved together all things art, music, politics and history were near perfection. And who can resist the theatrical and passionate lectures by Jeremy Adams? I loved his classes so much that just this past summer I took my children to the south of England and climbed around ancient sites just hoping to inspire them as he had inspired me. Jim Hopkins, Ken Carroll, Annemarie Carr and Mary Vernon round out my list of outstanding faculty. My appreciation for their talents grows with each year that passes, because I realize what a gift it was to be one of their students. Thank you, SMU! I wish I could return!
