Two years ago Dr. Jeannine Skinner was taken from life too soon. She was a great colleague
and friend to many of us at UNC Charlotte, and she is dearly missed every day by
colleagues, students, and friends within the University and the larger Charlotte
Thank you for helping us create a lasting legacy for Jeannine by donating to her Memorial
Scholarship fund. We are less than $5,000 away from meeting our final goal of $25,000
which will allow us to turn this fund into an endowed scholarship that will be annually
given in perpetuity.
During our memorial Jaye walk earlier this month, Dr. Skinner's friend and colleague, Dr. Anita Blanchard, recited the end of a Maya Angelou poem that perfectly captured Dr. Skinner's radiance.
"When Great Trees Fall."
Our senses, restored, never
to be the same, whisper to us.
They existed. They existed.
We can be. Be and be
better. For they existed.
Thank you for donating to the Dr. Jeannine S. Skinner Memorial scholarship so that we can help our students Be and Be Better because Jeannine existed.
