Below is the lead paragraph in Ingram’s about Lacey-Haun.

“Throughout her nearly 40 years of nursing education, most of it in Kansas City, Lora Lacey-Haun has been ahead of the curve: She became a nurse practitioner before it became a hot specialty, she’s long pushed for greater student-body diversity at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and she’s fostered innovative approaches to student retention. Not a bad track record for this native Alabamian, who came to the Midwest in 1981. She’ll retire this year from UMKC, where she’s been a professor, assistant dean and, since 2004, dean of the School of Nursing.”
