We asked members of the Marywood community to share their messages of thanks during the month of November. These are their responses.
Dr. Margaret Yarina altered the course of my college life. I entered Marywood College in 1961 intending to become a math teacher. Two concurrent events changed that: first, I didn't feel prepared for the college math curriculum; second, and more important, I took an English class with Miss (at the time) Yarina. I was enthralled by her lessons and, without much deliberation, changed my major study to English. I have had 25+ years of success as a high school English teacher and owe much of it to my initiation into the field by Miss Yarina. I was most inspired by her and am grateful to her for her strong influence she had on me at that time.
