Albion College Celebrates the Life of Professor Emerita Nancy Held

On February 4, professor emerita of education Nancy Held passed away at the age of 84. Held spent more than 30 years as a member of Albion College's faculty, educating countless future teachers and school administrators. A celebration-of-life event was held February 11 in Goodrich Chapel.

"Nancy was a remarkable person who exuded a joy for life and a genuine affection for people.
