The friends and family of the late Anna Gordon have given more than $30,000 to the College to establish the Anna E. Gordon Memorial Endowed Scholarship, which will be used to support students studying psychology. A 2009 graduate of The University of Alabama, Gordon earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and Spanish with summa cum laude honors; she minored in the Blount Undergraduate Initiative. In the spring of 2009 she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. During a period of remission, Gordon worked as an admissions counselor for UA. She died in May 2011.
