Check the schedule, see who's coming, make a gift, or sign up to attend the exciting Second Annual All-Western Reunion on the Reunion Web Site.  Reunion Registration Deadline, Monday, June 5!
 
A Non-Traditional Graduate Joins the Class of 2006
Catherine "Sue" McLaughlin Montgomery '56
accomplished the ultimate merger of the old and new Westerns when she received her degree with the Western College Program Class of 2006. Her former "roomie," Charlotte Leary Ross, as well as family members (including daughter-in-law Allison Schweser '93), were in the audience for the candlelight commencement ceremony in Kumler Chapel, May 6. Whether on land (as in Senior Projects and Tree Day) or sea (as in Shore to Slimy Shore), WCP students were involved in creative outlets for their spring fever this year. One "land" event, in particular, will strike a familiar chord with "old Western" alums. From the sublime to the ridiculous -- it was happening around the campus.  
 
Off the Wire: Retired -- but never retiring -- journalist Edith Evans Asbury '31 is still making headlines, while a distinguished scholar of another generation, Phyllis Scrocco Zrzavy '82, is piling up awards and honors in academia.
 
On the Record: Two writers in different genres do us proud. Award-winning author Sally Derby Miller '56 has published eight children's books (with another on the way) and multi-tasker Greg McGill '96 writes and directs in the world of theater.
 
With the WCAA: Lunching with Peabody Scholarship recipients and hearing their stories is always a highlight during spring weekend meetings of the Board of Trustees.

From the Archives: A special event occurred this spring when former national president of the League of Women Voters Carolyn Jefferson Jenkins '74 returned to campus to present her official papers to the Western College Memorial Archives.
