It truly is a small world.

On Wednesday, Heidelberg hosted a wonderful Patricia Adams Lecture Series 10th anniversary celebration that drew the likes of Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and his wife, Fran, among other local and state political figures. Following the event, Dean of Student Affairs Dr. Chris Abrams was waiting in the wings to share a story with the governor – a story that connects the DeWine and Abrams families in a very special way.

The Patricia Adams Lecture Series, which featured former First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush, was the ultimate celebration of 10 years of inspiration, encouragement and advice that PALS has brought to Heidelberg students and the community.

For Pat Adams, who with her husband, John, ’58, envisioned, created and funded PALS back in 2009, Wednesday’s events were everything she had hoped – and so much more.
