Mother, daughter make graduation family affair

Amber Reagan-Kendrick and her daughter, Jehan Reagan, will walk down the Hill together at commencement.

Reagan-Kendrick will earn a doctorate in American studies, and Reagan will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

“We will both walk down the Hill hand-in-hand,” said Reagan-Kendrick, who is associate director of the Health Careers Pathways program in the KU School of Medicine’s Office of Cultural Enhancement and Diversity.

“My purpose for going to college was to set an example for my children. I wanted them to value education as much as I.”

It’s a lesson her daughter has taken to heart. Reagan plans to return to KU with the goal of earning master’s degrees in public health and public health nursing.

In addition to earning her doctorate, Reagan-Kendrick has recorded the oral history of African-Americans from 1870 to 1960. The recordings will be transcribed for University Archives or the Kansas Collection at the Spencer Research Library at KU.
