It is with great sadness that I must relay to you that a cherished member of our UNE community passed away this week. I know this is difficult news to hear, and particularly this time of year.
Jean E. Herring of Mullins, South Carolina was a student in our MSW Online program for the past three semesters. A retired lab technician, she was heralded at one time as "Miss Mullins" in her hometown, and also as a Junior Miss Southern 500. She was a member of the Lake Swamp Baptist Church.
Visitation will be held this evening from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Cox-Collins Funeral Home in Mullins, with funeral services scheduled for 2 p.m. on Friday, December 24. Memorials may be made to McLeod Hospice, P.O. Box 100551, Florence, SC 29502.
Our thoughts are with her family and friends during this time.
