Pearl Yeadon's contribution to MSU is a legacy we are working to live up to and continue today. Dr. Yeadon was the director of opera at MSU until her sudden death in 2007. She took opera to the schools and to the homes of opera supporters throughout Springfield and her students continue to share her love for opera. Dr. Yeadon's legacy continues to help students grow through her scholarship fund.
At this gala, we will celebrate her family's generosity, the students who have made their dreams possible from her scholarship and the artform she loved so well.
