    “Donna, Donna” and Donald- We know her as a true inspiration of love, joy, hope and endurance. One who went far above and beyond what was requested in order to bring greatness to and from Arkansas and to all in her industry of education and gospel music abroad. She is irreplaceable and will be remembered in our hearts and at our college forever. Brother Donald stood alongside and they always would brighten up any day.
