One of the highlights of the meeting was a presentation by Christine Cruzvergara, the newly appointed Executive Director for Career Education of the Center for Work and Service, on on an exciting new program. She gave a description of the College to Careers initiative for students and alumnae (an initiative made possible in large measure by Lulu Wang’s philanthropy).

In recognition of Barbara Bywater Creed's wonderful leadership during these past five years, the class officers presented her with two gifts.
Outgoing Vice Presidents Linda Wyatt Gruber and Elaine Abbot French are shown at left presenting Barbara with a package that contains a framed "certificate" stating that a donation to the college for the College to Careers Initiative has been made in her honor.
Outgoing Treasurer Eleanor Frey Counselman also presented Barbara with a small token of the officers' appreciation--a pair of flamingo socks.
