Still Inspiring students

By Shirley Mathews ’81

I can still Judith Crist's exhortation in my head - "Precision!" And, after a long journalism career, I'm now a university teacher, and I like to think that every single day I push my students for more, it is because i can still hear her voice inside my head. she inspired me more than I can ever say, and now - even though my students don't realize it - she's still inspiring another generation of writers. Thank you, Mrs. Crist; I'm glad I got to say these words to you on the steps of the journalism building one blustery April.
