When Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord found out Franklin Pierce University wanted to bestow her an honorary degree, she had one question.

“I asked, ‘Why?’” Lord said. “It’s not something you get asked to do every day. They wanted to make sure I would accept it.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime event. I respect the university. We’ve had a great relationship for quite some time. I appreciate the recognition, but this is really a recognition of the city and the councilmembers. I accepted under the auspices of the city.”
