The David London My Last Words lecture series asks faculty members to address students as if they had one last opportunity to impart wisdom and life lessons. Students nominate faculty for the honor. In October, David S. Sims, associate professor of English composition, brought his unique, energetic style to the Klump Academic Center with a program titled "Ho-ka Hey!" He shared the stage with a sunflower from his garden, reflecting on the power of a plant’s seeds to spread and germinate. Sims played guitar and harmonica and sang; he even swept the stage as he concluded his lively presentation.
