                          “到世界最贫困的地方兴办教育,为人类的文明与进步献身”是她对上帝最初的承诺;她称自己是“世界公民”。血统、国籍、肤色和语言都无法阻隔她对人类的至爱,她先后在非洲、亚洲创办过七所学校,执教50多年。1986年应聘来延安大学外语学院任教5年,期间捐赠20万美元帮助延安大学修建一座外语教学楼,先后选送8名教师和学生赴美国留学。延安大学是她从事教育生涯的最后一站,她为这所大学的发展、壮大做了许多有益的工作,先后荣获“陕西省优秀外籍教师”称号和国务院“友谊奖”。

                          I have fought the good fight to the end;

                          I have run the race to the finish;

                          I have kept the faith......”

                           

                          BRIGID KEOGH

                          20多万美元建外语教学楼

                          克阿1986年来到延安大学时,学院的外语系还没有语言实验室和视听设备,甚至连像样的图书资料都找不出??税⒕桶炎约旱募竿蛟贸隼?,给学生买了资料和一套复印用的设备。

                          她还动议学校给学生腾出一间专门的房子作阅读室,但那时的延安大学根本没有多余房子,一些老师都要靠在校外租住民房??税⒕痛丝剂思苹?,为修建外语教学楼筹集资金。她的这个计划,在当时受到了校方和国家教委的欢迎,经过她自己在国外的一系列推介和接洽,最终为外语教学楼的修建筹集到20多万美元。

                          当克阿准备投入教学楼建设的时候,她得知,当时有关方面想从原定的设计中取消一间教室。于是,她找到远房亲戚——世界著名传记文学作家和记者、美国作协主席哈里森索尔兹伯里。在索尔兹伯里给时任国家主席杨尚昆写信之后,这一问题得以解决,1988922,延大外语教学楼正式动工,今天这幢楼已被命名为克阿楼,造福于延安大学的学生。

                          无国界爱心在延续传递

                          克阿逝世后,她的家人遵其生前遗嘱,将骨灰安葬在延安,地址为延安城郊仙鹤岭。2008921上午,包括延安大学在内的延安有关各界为克阿的纪念碑举行庄重简洁的揭碑仪式??税⒌闹端锱?/span>Kalo Heidi携其他亲属多人参与了这次仪式。

                          实际上,早在2006年,在克阿的感召下,Kalo就曾赴延安大学讲学,在克阿逝世后,Kalo夫妇又出资在延安大学设立了布里几德克阿奖学金。923,奖学金首届颁奖仪式举行,有两名学习优异者各获得2000元奖励。当天,Kalo一家还拿出1万美元捐给了奖学金。
