Jane Najarian Porter '74
October 20, 2016
I live in Chadds Ford, PA. My careers have been in nursing, finance, and my passion is textiles. Married to Rob Porter, an alum of Duke, 1975. Our son Daniel J Porter graduated in 2010 and is defending his dissertation on Dec 9, 2016. He will receive his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from University of Michigan.
Our trip to the Yucatan in January, 1973 (Jan Plan). I was climbing up the Temple of the Dwarf and started to freak out because of the height. Professor Aveni rescued me by climbing up the temple and guiding me down.
His warmth, smiles, love for teaching, love for life, honesty, concern for students. He is genuine and real. A true role model.
Congratulations Professor Aveni! Your warmth throughout the years has brought us treasured friendship with you and Lorraine. Can't wait to hear about your retirement experiences! Love, Jane
