Dr. Margaret “Speedy” Gehman and her trusty, albeit a bit rusty blue 1967 Volkswagen Beetle are almost synonymous to campus community members.
For decades she motored the streets of the greater Harrisonburg area even though she preferred walking to as many destinations as possible.
She’s been a resident of Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community since 2005, and in September 2010 donated the classic car to EMU in a touching example of stewardship.
Take a moment to share your campus memories of Dr. Gehman and her bug.
