The Southwestern community loves Ms. Ella. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni can always look to her to brighten their day with an elbow bump or a reassuring “I got you, baby!” as they walk into Mabee Commons. On Friday, November 30, 2018, Southwestern celebrated all the joy and encouragement Ms. Ella brings to the campus and Georgetown by honoring her with a bench and an engraved memorial plaque. The family of Marvin D. Henderson ’41 provided the funds for the commemorative bench, which was placed near the flagpoles on the Academic Mall. Watch as Associate Vice President for Development Kent Huntsman and a cheering crowd of SU Pirates surprise Ms. Ella with a tear-jerking tribute ceremony.
