October 18, 2022, Reinhardt University

On Tuesday, October 18th, family and friends of the late Breanna Chadwick congregated at Reinhardt University for an event commemorating her life and dedication of Bree's Corner in the courtyard between Paul Jones and Smith Johnson Halls. Attendants sported teal, Breanna's favorite color, and expressed their nostalgia for her time with them. Speeches were given by Tami Smith, Interim Dean of Price School of Education (PSOE) as well as Debby Pinion, Assistant Professor of Elementary Education who had served as Chadwick’s advisor. Their affectionate recollections included acknowledging Chadwick's starry-eyed enthusiasm towards third-grade curriculum and especially Dr. Seuss, but more emphasizing how incomparable her smile that touched everyone who knew her. As a token to honor her memory, a book entitled "What if There Were No Teachers?" was distributed among those present -some receiving one for themselves courtesy Reinhardt Library Services-, meant to be retained as an elegant reminder that teachers are an integral part of our society behind each success hitherto achieved throughout mankind's existence.

Honor Walk

July 10, 2023 at Erlanger Hosiptal

Honoring and celebrating the incredible act of donation is an important part of the donor’s families' healing process. Held when requested or approved by a donor's family, an Honor Walk is a way for hospital staff to come together and recognize the selfless act of donating organs, eyes, and tissue. At the start of an Honor Walk, notification is made to those in the hospital to recognize that a donor will soon be transported down the hallway from their room to the operating room. Hospital staff lines up along this hallway while they observe in reflection. As they accompany their loved one through this procession, some choose to do so with music or by making other special requests; these requests are often able to be granted. For example, over 100 friends and family members were present at Bree's Honor Walk in support of her decision.
