On Saturday, April 16th, members of the Denver Chapter of the Meredith College Alumnae Association met for a brunch at The Lobby in downtown Denver. We were very excited to have two new faces in the crowd–Sandi and Wendy. We mostly chatted, reminiscing about our experiences at Meredith and excitedly discussing how great it would be to have an Alumna as the next President of the College. Little did we know that Dr. Jo Allen, ’80 was going to be announced as the President-elect of Meredith college in just a few short days!
Our main goal right now is to have more women involved in the Denver chapter because we know there are more alums out there. So, if you are a Colorado alumna and would like to meet more Meredith women, please contact the ladies in the Office of Alumnae & Parent Relations and they’ll put you in touch with us. Or, you can subscribe to updates from our brand new facebook group by searching for “Meredith Alumnae – Colorado” and requesting to join!
More than anything, it is comforting to know that there are other women nearby who loved Meredith College and who understand the need to talk about Cornhuskin’ or the value of a Women’s college education or missing the blossoming azaleas in the spring.
We’re planning on having another event sometime in June, so be on the lookout for an invitation with details. We would love to have you there!
