The Antioch Community recently lost one of the brightest stars in our constellation - Precious Jewel Freeman Graham - who passed away on Monday, November 30 after nine decades on this Earth. Treasured by Antioch College for her 30-year contribution as a professor and founder of Antioch’s social work program, she was honored in 2006 with the J.D. Dawson Award for service to the institution. Among Jewel’s many accomplishments, a list of which would fill pages, she went back to school in her fifties ultimately obtaining a J.D. from the University of Dayton.
