Eric Conway: The Passing of Shirley Basfield Dunlap

Dr. Eric Conway writes:

Hello Fine and Performing Arts Community,

It is with a heavy heart that I must share the news of the passing of our dear Shirley Basfield Dunlap.  Shirley was the Coordinator of our Theatre Arts program in the Fine and Performing Arts Department.  Most recently, Shirley directed the stellar Theatre Morgan production of August Wilson's The Piano Lesson.   I received notice of her passing yesterday, and was devastated.  Cheryl Williams was by her side during her last breaths.  She was a colleague who raised the standards of all who came in contact with her.  Please join me in lifting her family and extended family up in prayer!


We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle
