Writing a doctoral dissertation about Voorhees College in 1983 allowed me to view Luns C. Richardson in his role as acting president of Voorhees, and subsequently his larger career of 43 years as president of Morris College.
He was gifted with a mind for leadership in education and a heart for the students, faculty and people who surrounded him, and he deserves to be recognized as a discerning leader in American educational history. He understood that education without Christian values could not be an enduring force in the progress and harmony of nations.
Dr. Richardson was able to build community with all races, creeds and students and faculty from different regions because he understood that respect and love of God must be translated to respect and love of people.
President Luns taught that philosophy and lived it — an unforgettable legacy.
Never miss a local story.
