EDITOR’S DESK: 'Do it with love': words to live by

"Do it with love."

It's the Frances Smith Herron Dance Studio's motto, and Northwest Florida State College dance faculty take it to heart.

"It's about doing what you do with grace and love for both the art and the student who creates the art — to help make our students become better persons and live life to the fullest, just as Frances did," professor of dance Joseph Taylor told News Bulletin reporter Brian Hughes.

The motto — which embodies Herron, the studio's late founder and former department head — offers words to live by.  

People who put passion into their work tend to leave a mark with ripple effects that last for days, months, years and even generations.

An endowment to name NWF State College's dance studio in Herron's memory has surpassed $105,000 and funded $5,000 in dance scholarships and program support, according to Hughes' report.

And this past weekend's American Cancer Society Relay For Life definitely left its mark.
