Who was an influential person during your time at Eureka – how did they make a difference in your life?

Huge shout out to the late Professor Dr. Loren Logsdon, he was such a tremendous force in my life. He encouraged me to learn and to lead with love. Dr. Logdson was a huge cheerleader of mine from the time I arrived to Eureka and up until his final moments with us. He was such an inspiring figure to me, whenever I write essays or think pieces, I always think of him.
