Long-time friend of the Zach S. Henderson Library, Ms. Kirbylene Stephens, passed away November 15. When Ms. Stephens graduated from Georgia Teachers College in 1955, President Zach Henderson asked her to work in his office as his secretary. That began her 32 years of service as secretary to six Georgia Southern University presidents, beginning with President Zach S. Henderson in 1955, and ending with Interim President Harry Carter in 1987. In 1987, she became Director of Special Projects and Associate Director of the Alumni Association. She retired from Georgia Southern in 1992. Her connection with President Henderson made her a strong supporter of the Henderson Library, and she became a member of the board of Friends of Henderson Library in 2009. She will be greatly missed.
