Once upon a time, not so very long ago in the evolution of education, teachers had to teach without benefit of overhead projection systems, power point, Smart Boards, and streaming video.

The best did it with passion for their discipline, with mastery of the material, with the strength of their delivery, and with the power of their ideas.

Dr. Marion Kayhart was one of the best.  She still is.

At a bio-symposium held in her honor on November 18, the biology professor who is remembered with awe (and terror) by legions of Cedar Crest alumnae, treated her former students and colleagues and current faculty and students to a 30-minute discourse on the process and import of science.  Science graduates from all over the country had traveled to campus for the opportunity to hear her speak.

Remembering her insistence on punctuality, they did not linger over coffee at the continental breakfast preceding her talk.  They took their seats in Oberkotter Hall at least five minutes before the lecture was to begin, nervously glancing at the clock to make sure they weren’t late.

Trustee Karen Long Wagner ’83, a nuclear medicine major who is now director of oncology and a medical physicist and radiation safety officer at St. Joseph Medical Center in Reading, opened the meeting on time.  “Today’s speaker requires no introduction,” she said.

For the benefit of members of the audience who weren’t fortunate enough to be at Cedar Crest during Dr. Kayhart’s era, Karen explained that the former chair of the Biology Department was “a fine, concise and organized teacher, an exacting scientist, and a challenging examiner” who made an “indelible impact” on science and non-science majors alike during her 39 years on the Cedar Crest faculty.

That soon became apparent.
