Frances Herron endowment

Frances Smith Herron, the wife of retired Fine and Performing Arts Division head Cliff Herron, died at age 54 in 2006 after complications from liver failure.

Students, alumni, colleagues and supporters raised $90,000 in 2008 for an endowment to celebrate her life by naming the college's dance studio in her memory.

The endowment has surpassed $105,000 and provided more than $5,000 in dance department scholarships and program support.
