A Tribute to Dr. Maya Angelou

Our 2007 Conference Closing Keynote Speaker

We join millions around the world mourning the death of author, poet, and civil rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou on Wednesday, May 28, at the age of 86.  Dr. Angelou’s life journey exemplifies the true meaning of resilience.  She not only survived, she thrived. Therefore, it was so appropriate that she agreed to be with us as our closing keynote speaker for our 2007 WLC theme of “Resilience”. Dr. Angelou once said, “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeat, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, and how you can still come out of it.”

We extend our condolences especially to her family and friends, but truly her loss is felt worldwide. Bay Path College Marketing Specialist, Nicola Smith-Oliver remembered, “It was an honor to have Dr. Angelou as my college poetry professor. I was in awe.” As a mentor to many during her life, Dr. Angelou’s literary voice and powerful legacy of justice, education, and equality will continue to inspire future generations.
