History was made at the Capstone in Tuscaloosa...
Trustees named "provost , Dr. Judy Bonner as the new president of the University of Alabama.
She becomes the first female to lead the school in its 181-year history.
Bonnner's appointment comes on the heels of the sudden departure of Dr. Guy Bailey.
Bailey was hired this summer-- but, resigned to take care of his wife, who is battling a serious illness.
You have to admire Dr. Bailey for his commitment. And you also have to be very happy for Dr. Judy Bonner.
I had the pleasure of dining with Dr. Bonner at a nurse award dinner last year.
She was so humble yet so intelligent and gracious. We chatted and became fast friends.
The Trustees describe her as an asset and there is no doubt she will certainly be just that.
Congratulations Dr. Bonner.
