Making the world better for all-one person at a time- Bob Barker Story
Two Thumbs Up Award from Nature’s Crusaders
A former graduate of Drury University Bob Barker of Price is Right fame is helping create a better world through his million dollar donation to his alma mater. The generous donation is earmarked for the creation of an Animal Rights undergraduate curriculum. with the help of one famous alumnus, Drury University in Springfield, Mo., is giving the Heartland a humane education.
The funds will establish a full-time professorship for Animal Rights. Patricia McEachern, a professor of French and director of the previously formed Forum on Animal Rights will oversee the development of the curriculum thanks to the Dorothy Jo Barker Endowed Professorship, named for Barker’s late wife.
Over the next year, McEachern hopes to add at least two more courses, slowly building the Forum up to a possible minor, and, eventually, major area of study. For more information on this unique and much needed advancement for animal-rights education click here.
