Virginia STEAM Academy Celebrates the Life of Summer STEAM Faculty “Dr. D”

Virginia STEAM Academy shares its condolences with the family, friends and colleagues of Hollins University Mathematics Professor Dr. Caren Diefenderfer (Dr. D as she was fondly called). Dr. D had taught at Hollins University since 1977. In 2016, she taught Games, Puzzles and Logic at Virginia STEAM Academy’s first girls-only Summer STEAM session. She also collaborated with Virginia STEAM Academy to deliver a professional development seminar at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond. Dr. D epitomized joyful learning. We are grateful for the time we had together. She will be missed.
