Honors mourns the passing of Dr. Donna Parsons 

Dr. Parson's energetic lectures and intellect will be deeply missed

Our sincere condolences go out to the family, friends, and colleagues of Dr. Donna Parsons.  She was a consummate teacher whose passion for her students and subjects was evident to everyone who spoke with her.  Her Honors courses on Harry Potter and the Beatles were legendary-always filled within hours of posting and always had wait lists.  For those students who had the good pleasure of spending time with her in or outside of the classroom, be thankful for her dedication to you and your success as an individual.  They meant the world to her.  Donna's enthusiasm will be missed by us all.
