Dara Spearman-Wardlow ’99
Having attended the same alma mater and accomplished careers in medicine aren’t the only connections shared by Dr. Dara Spearman-Wardlow ’99 (left) and Dr. David Paul ’10 (right), who each received awards during the Black Excellence Dinner hosted by Hope’s Black Student Union during Homecoming Weekend. (They are pictured with fellow honoree Dr. Vicki-Lynn Holmes, associate professor of mathematics and education.)
David’s family attended the church pastored by Dara’s parents. They helped guide him as he decided between a career in either business or medicine and where he would pursue his undergraduate degree, as did conversations with Dara, who was herself pre-med at Hope.
