Beki Gray Hadley taught biology at Delta College from 1986 until her death in 1988 from injuries in an automobile accident. During her short tenure, she made a significant impact on her colleagues and her students. She directed a youth choir and raised a Labrador puppy for the Lion’s Leader Dogs for the Blind program. Upon her death, family members donated her vital organs to the University of Michigan Organ Donor Program. Her heart and lungs were consequently used in the first multiple transplant performed in Michigan.
