The late professor’s affection for Sogang was so remarkable that she even remembered the names of all students in class. The late professor Jang Young-hee, who showed endless passion for study and devotion for others, rising from the difficulty of handicap, is still regarded as an affectionate teacher of many Sogang students. Her love and devotion will last forever in the hearts of many Sogang people.
