In Loving Memory,

It is with great sadness to inform the community that our former Library Director and Professor DeCarlous Spearman passed away on Wednesday, December 13, 2023. DeCarlous Spearman was Director of the Thurgood Marshall School of Law Library from 2006 - 2020 (Interim 2006-2008). She was a TMSL alum and her dedication exemplified the school's motto of Protect It.... Improve It...… Pass It On. She was referred to as our fearless leader and worked tirelessly for our establishment for many years. Professor Spearman was excited in anticipation of TMSL's Retiree Celebration, but she is now resting in eternal celebration. Not only was she dedicated to TMSL, she was a beloved wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. Please keep the Spearman family in your prayers. DeCarlous Spearman's legacy of loyalty, dedication, strength in the face of adversity, and leadership will live in our hearts forever!

Rest in Heaven!
