I only had a few classeses with Adrienne during my time at kirkwood. And while we weren't close, i could tell she would be a great person to have in your life. She was so outgoing and got everyone laughing during class. She truely made personal finance bareable. She had a great, shining personality that you could see miles away. RIP Adrienne, you will forever be in our hearts.
