Her favorite class this year? Jewish American Literature, "because professor Cheryl Lester really knows how to engage with her classes."

Beard, who came to KU as a Foundation Distinguished Professor, has a passion for being out in the middle of nowhere and making a discovery — “There’s nothing better than that. It’s fabulous.”
