On April 11, a group friends and colleagues gathered at the University of Chicago to celebrate the life of GSU faculty member, Dr. Judy Lewis.
Dr. Lewis left a far reaching legacy and her eulogizers were able to highlight her many accomplishments. Three former psychology and counseling faculty, Dave Matteson, Rachel Berg and Michael Lewis, were attendance as well as many other colleagues from other segments of GSU.
Many former graduates of GSU were also in attendance. Richard Yep, the CEO of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and several past-presidents of ACA were also participants. Chicago jazz legend and friend of Dr. Lewis,’ Frieda Lee, sang several songs that were her favorites, said professor Jon Carlson.
Prior to the service ending with “We Shall Overcome” and “What a Wonderful World,” letters of sympathy from another friend of Dr. Lewis, President Barack Obama, as well as the Illinois State Legislature were read. Judy’s impact went far beyond GSU.
