Barbara Eells/Class of 1986

'None of us makes it to our goals alone'

If there's one word that best describes Barbara Eells, it is "determined." That mindset has guided Eells her entire adult life, starting with her first Southwestern class in 1975. She wanted a college education, no matter the barriers.

In 2018, Southwestern honored Barbara Eells with its Distinguished Alumna award for her dedication to learning and improving people's lives in Curry County.
