Burnett Dixon was a professor of Human Development Counseling and Sociology; Moy was a professor of Child, Family, and Community Services; and Smith was a professor of Sociology. The program will include a panel discussion among the three about their time on campus, which spanned the years from 1973 to 1992. EHS Dean Larry Stonecipher noted, "Each of these professors made valuable contributions to Sangamon State University and UIS.  Their legacy of excellent teaching is one that continues."
