We are grieving the loss of Laura Wilkinson this week.
Laura had several different roles in the Boyer School. She was an adjunct professor in the chemistry department, teaching one of the General Chemistry labs. She was also a lab manager, a position split between the biology and chemistry departments. Those were her official titles, but of course she was much more than those words on paper. She was a wife, a mother to 4 children, a friend to everyone. She was gentle. Her smile was golden, as was her laugh. Our students learned from her and leaned on her for emotional support. Laura was fun to be around.
