Lula Morton Drewes, the first African American student to matriculate at Transylvania (in 1963), presented a talk titled "A Journey of Healing: The 50th Anniversary of Desegregation at Transylvania University" during convocation on Sept. 15. It is part of the year-long Still Overcoming program. Drewes and alum Pat Molloy, who paid her way through college, were approved for Doctor of Humane Letters degrees. And Molloy's classmate, Michael Mitchell, who helped pave the way for desegregation, will receive the President's Award.
