Classes of 1939-49

Betty Messenger '47 stands between two students at Reunion.“Our class was the centennial and sesquicentennial of Lawrence. Who’s not going to celebrate that?” Betty has always held Lawrence in special regard. It’s where she met her husband, John, and began a life of learning. Though they traveled around the world and became acquainted with many other universities, they always made an effort to return to campus for reunion. At Reunion 2017, Betty had a very special opportunity: “I was pleased to meet Adrian Opan '18, one of the recipients of our scholarship.” Betty shared that she supports Lawrence to experience the development of a liberal arts education firsthand and to help students such as Adrian have a transformative learning experience.
