As one who has contributed articles to Spectrum from the first issue and, by chance, also to the last one, I remember talking to Roy Branson about this journalism student who was doing wonderful reporting for him. He was really impressed by her intelligence and writing style. It was no surprise to me when years later Roy’s student reporter became the editor of Spectrum. My conversations with her have been always enlightening and stimulating, and her appreciation for my articles were a strong encouragement to keep trying. She has been a beam lightening the path to the future and calling attention to the difficulties to be aware of while traveling. She has made an indelible impression on many souls. I can only hope that when she no longer is the editor she will continue to enrich us with her wisdom and optimism. For all she has done already, We are in your debt, Bonnie.
