RELAY HYMN: Terry Adkins in Memoriam

Terry Adkins

Terry Adkins Portrait

Terry Adkins

Please join PennDesign as we celebrate the life and work of our beloved colleague Professor Terry Adkins, who passed away on February 8.

Terry’s wife Merele shared the message that “he lived life for, and loved, his students.” Professor Joshua Mosley noted that “Terry championed the hard-working underdog in each of us; he taught us to trust our intuition to the very deepest level, to act directly—and to honor moments—like this very moment—with infinite focus and with the broadest awareness.”
