Bryn Mawr continues to be a large part of my life, even years after graduation. I have met fellow alumnae everywhere, face-to-face and electronically, and am always delighted and challenged by them. I will be forever in the college's debt, and in some small way I try to repay it by serving as a class officer and as a board member of my local club.
My lantern has been for me first a warm welcome, later a reminder of my time on campus, and always a symbol of the light not just of learning, but of wisdom, clarity, and joy.
E.B. White's essay about his wife, Katharine 1914, is a love letter to her and to the other Bryn Mawr women he knew. My aim is to be worthy of his words "As they grow in years, they grow in light."
