Twelve years ago, York College needed someone to tackle the unknowns of remote classrooms and help us launch into the world of distance learning. We turned to Dr. Jackie (Hance ’59) Humphrey, a retired educator and nursing facility administrator. In fact, Jackie and her husband Joe, also a recent retiree as a university accounting professor, both volunteered their time to move to York in 2009 and teach as visiting professors. Jackie’s main task, however, was to coordinate YC’s new online learning program and get it off the ground.
