On June 5th:The Alumnae Assoc. held its 141st Annual Meeting during which we heard various reports by the outgoing President and were introduced to in-coming Board members and officers. The Serena Stackpole award was presented to 2 members of the class of 1970 and 2 of the class of 1971.
We learned that results of the recent questionnaire sent to alums indicate that a majority of us greatly appreciate the Wellesley network, have been very satisfied by the education we received, and felt we were prepared well for life. A link to the full report will be posted when it is publicized.
As of May, 9.1 million dollars have been raised of the 10.5 million goal for the fund for Wellesley and additional donations have been added and will continue to be added through June. It is hoped that the participation goal of 40% will also be reached...so even if you send can afford to send only a tiny gift, do try to contribute!
President Johnson spoke about the newest strategic plan which will be published in the near future. Meanwhile, here is a brief look at the outline she presented.
