Priscilla Hopkins was an excellent teacher who inspired her students. As a former student she introduced me to Southern and Appalachian writers, writers whose works I might not have otherwise read. We stayed in contact over the last thirty years and she was just as gracious, personable and witty as always. I am thankful I was able to be one of her students and value the experiences I gained. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family.

Priscilla was not only a teacher but a friend. She was a marvelous teacher, who made lasting impressions on her students that went beyond the classroom. Our real friendship began with birth of our first children. Giving birth to our sons on the same day we spent hospital time together and continued to build our friendship by bringing our sons together and learning to be moms. . I will always remember her for her skills in the classroom as well as a supportive friend.
