The Celebration for Professor Ryn Edwards was actually a great gift for all who attended. Our returning women alums were amazing. The return of former Professors Joan Cadden, Rita Kipp, and David Marcey brought back many fond memories and reminded us that though Kenyon has made great strides for diversity, we still have work to do. Thanks to all who made this event happen, and to all of the amazing women who have contributed to making Kenyon a better place for all.
