One of the honors of my life is having Audrey Payne as a friend colleague. Audrey was smart creative and passionate about learning and the potential of young people. She was courageous , funny and marched to her own music. In personal and educational settings she challenged conformity and celebrated diversity. Audrey inspired generations of "different drummers" to follow their own paths and develop their individual talents and gifts. My sincere condolences to Steven and JoCatherine and family on the loss of this remarkable lady
