Longtime College Friend PassesWoodrow W. Kirk, Associate Professor of Sociology 1968-98
Woodrow W. Kirk, longtime sociology professor at York College, passed away April 2, 2010. Woody and Kathryn made York College their home in 1968 and gave 30 years to what they deemed a ‘higher calling.’ Alumni remember with fondness Woody’s marriage and family lectures, his honesty and straightforwardness. Of course they also find it hard to think of the registrar's office without Kathryn's welcoming smile.
When the Kirks retired in 1998 and made their move to Texas, they deeded to the college their house across from campus. Strong proponents of the institution's mission and the impact YC students could have on the world, their influence will always be embedded within life at York College.
There will be a memorial service Saturday, April 10, 11:00 am, at the Christian Care Center in Mesquite, Texas. Cards and letters of sympathy can be sent to Kathryn at 4810 Rollingwood Ct., Garland, TX 75043.
