For #WomensEqualityDay Kate Morris is grateful for a true friend and mentor, Bonnie Wheeler, Associate Professor and Director of Medieval Studies, SMU

Thank you, Bonnie, for being a true friend and mentor. Had I known at age 14 that the woman lecturing in Middle English at the Dallas Museum of Art (and whipping red tights out of her blouse to properly commemorate the Wife of Bath) would become one of my best friends and heroes, I would have run to you then and there. Regardless, for over 20 years, you have anchored some of my most unforgettable conversations, imparted memories of daffodils on the worst days and walks in Christchurch meadow on the best, and inspired my intellectual growth, my work ethic and my love of the English language, King Arthur, feminism, and risotto.

You are a blessing to me and to so many others. Thank you for the example you set and the love you give. – “Your Kate” – Kathryne (“Kate”) M. Morris
