Gloria Walker, Carson-Newman University Vice President for Student Services, says the heartbreak resulting from the death of her friend Christy Bowlin (obituary, page 9A) is mitigated by knowing “that she is healed and pain free.”

The beloved Carson-Newman cheerleading coach passed last week following a breast cancer journey that began some 3.5 years ago. Those close to her say her ability to foster enthusiasm and imbue spirit into others was but one of the gifts she freely shared.
